ARTIST STATEMENt

What is most exciting to me as an artist is twofold:  The constant awe and wonder at the creative process itself, to witness how words, questions and music insinuate themselves into my awareness and demand to be expressed.  They have a life of their own, which literally demands to be authentic and does not tolerate manipulation.  In that manner my poems have taken me on a spiritual journey of discovery.  As an artist it is my deepest wish to share this journey with my audience  -  to share the endless questions that relentlessly point inwards and help discover an inner Truth  -  the inevitable Truth that can be discovered underneath our convictions, underneath our polarizing opinions and belief systems and even underneath all our shared hardships.
