"I consider myself a very spiritual person, but not bound to any one specific belief system. I am inspired by convergence of cultural imagery, spirituality and ideas that have occurred as a result of the progressive globalization we see today. I find a consistent duality in my work integrating life and death, past and present, natural and industrial, digital and physical."
