Oh Mary Don’t You Weep

My work is concerned with life and existence in the inner city. In the inner city, one endures and is fascinated by the amount, variety, and ubiquity of urban debris. Its pervasive presence informs the textures, forms, and palettes in my work. I am convinced that improvisation is at the heart of creativity. In my art, I attempt to express not only aesthetic values, but social, moral, and spiritual ones as well.
