My inspiration as an artist and writer stems from an understanding that everything is connected.
Our experiences, dreams and memories are intricately linked with those of all others
who live, have lived or will live on our planet.
We catch glimpses of holistic bonds in fleeting moments of awareness, in those seconds of déjà vu, and confident recognition when we first meet someone or encounter new information.
From this awareness, images and sentences form themselves and provoke a creative process.
I try to stay alert as I wait for these fragments of illumination.
