"The icons began with the realization that the visual world was limited in trying to express a much larger universe that I felt but couldn’t see. If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s an icon worth? Words describe things, whereas icons point toward a more complex broader language to express my ideas. To me, icons are a form of language with universal meaning. My icons evolved into an unique language that expresses my insights and explorations of other realms."
