"My many years in Japan have taught me many things. However, one that stands out and remains to sculpt how I view the Japanese approach to artistry is the cultural love and admiration for the 'Perfect Imperfection'.  An appreciation and celebration of the part that makes something wonderfully unique.

I continuously strive to fine tune my process while restricting myself by strictly using only the original materials and techniques of this age old tradition.  It is my wish to instill an undeniable sense of life and motion to these underwater creatures that I hope will inspire and awe those that look upon them."
