Artist Statement

Travel. Live. Create

The question I dread most: "Where are you from?”

Simple answer - I was born in Syracuse, New York. The sit down and buy me a drink answer - I only lived in the U.S. for about three years before my family moved... and moved again... and again... West Germany, Spain, Morocco, West Berlin, back to West Germany, then Germany… Sicily, Italy… and so on.

Where am I from? I’m from a collage. Take your pick.

This peregrination has been rewarding, enlightening, fascinating and has created in me a wanderlust that has never quit. It has broadened my horizons and opened me to new experiences. My way of expressing this fascination, this joy, is through my art. My desire is to create images that communicate the quality of a place and of an experience. And if sharing my artwork with others helps broaden horizons, then I couldn't ask for more.

In short, I express the collage of my life through my photography, illustration and graphic design.

Traveling as a way of life, creating through art, living, not in fear, but in celebration of different people, cultures, and places, traveling light and leaving my baggage at home (wherever that is) may sound cliche, but it’s true: the more you carry with you the less you take away from your travels.

My art, then, is ultimately an answer to the dreaded, “Where are you from?”
