"My work is an introspective look through the Freudian shadows of life. The Freudian concept of 'das Ich' (understanding of the psychological 'I') and how my search to make sense of who I am, where I come from, and where I am headed. All the lives I have come into contact with; a working quid pro quo relationship with those who have taught me many a valuable lesson, as I too have left with them, an imprint of my experiences in life. As an information gatherer, experiencing various environments and the cultures, religions & traditions, through the eyes and language of the most obscure, I create through various media, an external representation of the unique; things or people I have had the privilege of being juxtaposed to."
