I am discovering that the more I learn, the more I still have left to learn. The more I experience, the more experiences I need and want to undertake. For me, life is about growing. It is also about understanding and developing an awareness of my responses to certain things and certain places. 

Through my art, I explore these experiences. Observation, research, conversation and creation are crucial to my process.
