The heart of my artistic expression is a collection of sketchbooks which spans my existence. It represents a single entity of work , ever present ever growing, a reflection of my life in real time.
This ensemble is for me the he main tool of my trade as an illustrator and a conceptual artist.
With the help of these books I "triangulate" past present and future. Each entry in any book relates to other entries in other books as elements of a rhizome network in which, at each perceived intersection, there can be formed a synaptic connection that manifest itself as a moment of extraordinary clarity and equilibrium, which is the base of my creativity as an artist.
