This body of work has been an addressing of my life process during a time of war.

Growing up at military post Puckapunyal during the Vietnam War had left me with many questions.

Childhood was overshadowed by two coats of khaki paint on everything that didn't move.

The phrases 'die young' and 'pack death' had entered the school ground.  On a childs level they meant you were in trouble when you got home. The terminology had a deeper meaning for the soldiers who initiated the language.

We watched thousands of national servicemen enter our world and leave again.

I struggle with the ideology of war; failure to communicate as humanity is destroyed to make a political point or a dollar.
