„Line has always been a mystery to me. Its subtle structure and the fact that it is the starting point for all things. Over the years, I have become obsessed with the lines and its connection to natural, emotional and man-made entities.
Working with line has become a philosophy to me and my study and experimentation with it induces a sense of transcendental meditation. Each drawing, installation and mixed media work is visualized through the thought of a single line; the alpha point. That first marking, from which the rest of the work builds shape.“
