My imagery and work is a complex layering of semiotics. In addition to that I have long been fascinated by Asian culture and its written language. I see the kanji as art objects first and its meaning second. My main body of work has been evolving to a more personal narrative for expressing concerns in my own life and deal with issues that are common to us all.

My work consists of computer generated images that are printed with a ceramic glaze onto a large canvas of clay. Creating and collecting images, I scan them into the computer and manipulate them to fit the concept. The new image is then output onto transparent film that acts as a stencil for transferring the image to a silk-screen. Glaze is then used (instead of ink) to print the image on a wet slab of clay which is then dried and fired.
