QUARANTINE ISLAND, also known as Karantina Adasi, is an island in Urla, a town and district of Izmir Province in Turkey. A brief history of ancient Clazomenae; what is now known as KARANTINA ISLAND.
Arriving Friday, 23 September - Sunday, 2 October, 2005, the days and nights that I stayed on the island left such a deep impression and had such a profound effect on me, that as much as I wanted to share my experience, I didn't know how to go about it for fear of its importance getting lost in translation.

More than three years later, I feel that I have the confidence in allowing those interested a glimpse of a very special moment in my life along with some very special people that I feel so fortunate to have met and experienced. (View photos and more from my stay on Quarantine Island)

Below is the group of the work created upon my return from Turkey dating from 2005-2009. I still work level surfaces; this group involves working with varied surface textures and levels created by recycled strips of canvas-mounted paper.
