As a kid, we moved around a lot because my dad was in the Air Force. Nothing ever lasted very long. So Iím always looking for anchors. The things that will last. The things that have lasted.

When I go up to Provincetown, Iím always taking pictures of old buoys and other weathered relics. Harpoons. Shutters with the paint peeling off. Piles of old ropes. Those are the things that are real for me because theyíve lasted. Endured. For me, thatís beauty.

I also live in a city of monuments, so Iím surrounded by symbols. Iím drawn to them. You see a lot of symbols and icons in my work. I like to juxtapose symbols that shouldnít go together but doóone of the reasons I love graffiti. If it wasnít illegal, Iíd be doing it all the time.
