Artist's Statement

Coming out of the Bay Area Conceptual scene of the late 70's and the seemingly contradictory East Village gallery scene of the early 80's has allowed me to explore any avenue in the art making process. From buying and branding cows, to singing in a rock band, starting a church and a school, hunting deer, pulling prints from tattoos, creating various pseudonyms and ways of image and object making, it all ends up being the same- lifestyle as art.
