Artist statement:
"Which is more musical: a truck passing by a factory or a truck passing by a music school?" (John Cage) For the last twelve years I have been incorporating poetry, architecture, Japanese comics, dreams, sound and textiles into my sonic landscapes. Every city is filled with sounds that combine to form a sonic landscape. I turn these sounds into color.
