I have done many works with strong ethnic themes. Ethnic also means to me design that emphasizes bold color, form, symbolism and juxtaposition, as well as cultural themes. Since I embrace all of these elements in my work, it is natural for me to absorb them from the art of other cultures.

Most frequently in my work, this has meant South Pacific tropical, Latin-American, African or Native-American. Now living in the Northeast, that landscape and color palette appears more often. It is less bold, but entrancing in its subtlety and variation.
