Short Biography

I am an artist deeply immersed in the political questions of our time looking for urgent solutions. Racism, the environment poverty, a minute minority who own and control the worlds wealth and means of controlling that wealth, setting ordinary people and workers at each others throats with conscious racism, sexism, ageism and homophobia. I cannot settle in the art of subtle statements to be nice, or obscure messages of abstraction anymore.

Please bare with me into my darker period. I remember words from Brecht maybe imperfectly. In the dark times will there be singing. (and art) Yes there will be singing about the dark times. We have never been closer to the dark, and therefore we have never had the need to see a socialist world where each people are not commodities but our human need is paramount. From each according to their ability, to each according to their need. Refugees across the world need us now.
