My visual work is often responsive to stimuli, whether it's a painting, a poem, a performance, or a perceived situation. In order that these stimuli are responded to in a state of freedom, I don't limit my responses to purely visual. Within this response I will move, improvise spoken word poetry, play music and paint. These paintings are the visual record of these sessions. These are sometimes live performances, sometimes video art, rendered down to a practice I call my 'Small Epics'
