Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)
