“In my art, I attempt to express not only aesthetic issues, but social, moral, and spiritual ones as well. My work is concerned with life and existence in the inner city… The inner-city landscape I depict is both map and metaphor for the actual landscape and the contents of the collective unconscious.

I note and am impressed by the various makeshift structures I find in the urban environment. Newsstands, garden shacks and the temporary shelters made of cardboard, tin and/or wood, made by people without tools or homes. Structures shaped by necessity, with available materials and improvisation; where everything may be off a few degrees, but still work.”
