As an artist I create a world of distortions, bringing up images from my memory and my imagination, then refining them by adding or subtracting colors and lines. I examine the condition of people, animals, places and events from my own or from common experiences. My pictures tend to disorient, even when they depict recognizable images such as landscapes or forms. Woodcut is a technique that provides me with the numerous tools of expression that allow me to speak in the most concise artistic manner, creating a situation that is beyond words and that fills the void between though and speech
