I hope this introduction to my work, career and passions gives you a fine idea of the ways I communicate my visual messages in a variety of mediums and genres.
My visual art is a committed dialogue to expressing my relationship to my world, to my God and to all humanity.

-A sonnet for Tom Xenakis
Footprints of the tribes or of the stars,
Migrations crossing moons or galaxies,
Bubbling, churning, swirling scimitars,
Turbulence of high discoveries. . .
Orbits intersecting mist cascades-
Fuming rapids veined with fulgent madder,
Gaseous banks inscribed by cosmic blades,
Fast hurtling to the zenith. One great ladder
Leading to eternity. True gnosis
Calms temptation, unveils this vast vision:
All is rising towards I Am-Theosis
Is the energy! All fusion, fission
Are of the spirit here. From days of old
Both now and always: universe in gold.
