Credentials

"To me, being able to keep developing the direction in my own work has been a satisfying achievement. My two solo gallery shows in 2008 and 2010 meant a lot to me. They each provided me with the opportunity to produce cohesive bodies of work that continues to provide new ideas and directions."
