I am intrigued by the mystery of meaning that I find in ancient art, much of it in ruins, found in Mexico and other locations around the world.  In my art I attempt to capture that mystery, that "eternal presence" of ancient art forms, which elicit particular emotions in me that may be universal and timeless.  My intention is to create art forms that bring the eternal presence of the past to the present, to inspire reflection on contemporary time and place.
