"I create my art to heal the hearts and souls of people and their communities by evoking a positive spirit."
My art reflects a successful robust life creating objects and experiences. Over the years art has allowed me to travel, nationally and Internationally through, fellowships, grants, residencies, commissions, exhibitions, lectures and curatorial activities. I work in the spirit of collaboration and take great joy from witnessing my arts ability to catapult people into a visual journey.
I have always been fascinated with energy as a door, hallway, gateway or tunnel and the effect on ones approach or exit of a place. I am a son of a healer. On December 29th, 1972 my mother, Janet Aiken died on my twentieth birthday leaving me with a legacy of healing. I reluctantly accepted this inheritance as it slowly redefined my art and my determination to heal and use my art as a vehicle for change.
