Artist Statement

After traveling to New Orleans, I found new meaning in what to convey in my work. Seeing the conditions of this great southern city 6 months after hurricanes Katrina and Rita made me think of the standards of various living conditions locally, nationally and internationally. With the advent and growth of technology along with global awareness, great changes are happening in this profound moment in history. I have become dedicated to document through painting and share my visions to educate and hopefully activate others.

During october 2007 through april 2008 Dreamtime Circus toured throughout India and performed shows and gave workshops all for free at orphanages and refugee communities. In addition to performing, I painted in the countryside as well as deep in the cities. Check out Dreamtimecircus.org to see our progress on the upcoming 2010 tour in South America and for more info.
