After leaving home at the age of sixteen, I struggled with compounded survival issues including not only where to physically go, but also whom to trust and just exactly how to embark on this life I’d chosen? I was on a path to freedom with neither compass nor map.
Art provided me with direction, purpose and a means of expression that continues to fulfill and guide me to this day allowing me to work on several bodies of work simultaneously examining my life experiences, my immediate and global environment as well as topical issues addressing our society as a whole.
LORDS OF WAR addresses all kind of violence, especially directed against women, man, children, derived from my own past as a victim of juvenile abuse in its different subtle and obvious forms, and its prevalence in world culture eroding human relationships since the beginning of time.
LORDS OF WAR is about domestic, sexual, political and religious violence against human kind
My goal is to promote healthy relationships and mutual respect between men and women worldwide. Domestic violence remains an important risk factor that threatens the physical, psychological and emotional well-being and health of the human kind with far reaching implications and consequences worldwide.
