  Art is communication and writing is a means of articulating the intent of my artwork. It also serves in expressing ideas of social concern and prison-reform. I find it evolving (along with my visual art and theatre experiences) towards the direction of screenwriting: storyboards, illustrating dramatic events, performed by trained actors.
