"My work uses visual metaphor to bring the viewer along a journey. It often evokes different architectural forms; the strength and traditions associated with these forms lend importance and legitimacy to the piece and the ideas within it. I try to recall certain moods and stages I have been on during my journey, from despair and uselessness to hope, freedom, courage, peace and joy. Generally I begin with a personal story that evoked an emotion, then turn that feeling or experience into an image or series of images. Most of the images in my work are from my own photographs; they undergo a lengthy process of scanning and ‘fiddling’ in the computer before ending up on the metal.

What I create is highly personal, but it is also meant to be universal. There are certain internal changes that all of us face as we move through life, and emotions that go with them. Therefore, while what I create reflects my personal passage, it is my hope that you will find parts of your own journey there, too."
