Charting the inner terrain of my subconscious creates a portal to ancestral spirits. Gazing at a blank sheet of paper, I see phantom lines emerge. Very carefully I trace these elusive shadows. My drawings take hundreds of hours to complete. It is a long meditative process of listening and concretizing the ethereal. In time, contour lines delineate biomorphic figures. These characters are ancient yet, futuristic, familiar yet, unknown. Through free association they tell a story about: origins of time and space, how the spirit world relates to this world, and how to be in harmony with the universe.
