These works are focused on the social changes and political confusion that shape and direct the future of American society. Our society is guided by a media-created mythology that is a deceitful and repressive influence over our lives. The media has manipulated our society and filled it with false illusions.

I see my work as a healing process to vent my anger and frustration at a world that has created this monster. In these works, I explore this exploitation of the environment, the myth of sexual roles, and the pursuit of spiritual awareness in the growing sea of illusion.
