My pictures are confused, abrupt, adamant, honest and entirely lacking in foresight. They are born from an argument between life's experiences, subconscious impulses and my own muddled aesthetic preferences; this dialogue is strained but ongoing. They are made possible only by the depth of my illness and the gift of my sobriety. I have accepted both graciously. They are, individually and as a group, an unwitting self-portrait.

Public Outsider Art- Calgary, Alberta 2008
I was walking to an AA meeting at the Salvation Army and saw these cool little tiles, thousands of them all around a big municipal building in Calgary. It was really cool. They were all done by kids and then put together in a giant assemblage.
