"My deepest yearnings and desires are best expressed as poetic compositions. Using abstraction and representation, I employ visual means to infer experiences, the images serving as shadows of memory that set in motion the process of remembering and the creation of new experiences. Escaping a linear interpretation while pointing to an abstract meaning, my paintings reflect my desire for a union in the context of duality, a response to the calling of my soul and venturing a glimpse into the lesser known areas of my psyche."

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
