They call me The Shaman Of Light. I am a light artist that works with light as a sculptural form. I have been creating sculptural light works and installations for over 25 years. I create sculptural installations that attempt to erode the boundary between subject and object. This experience is made profoundly physical by incorporating these objects to evoke personal feelings and memories. Exhibiting is a great way to invite people to open their minds to thinking in different ways, while opening new windows for the future.
