artist statement

To borrow from the famous British historian James Burke, “empty your pockets, ( or purse), on the nearest table.

Try to find something not produced in the hundreds of millions”.  That anomaly explains what I feel is my purpose as an artist.  Originality for each Originality in one of the few areas left in this modern world.
