Artist Statement

My art work is a distillation of ideas explored through painting, drawing, sculpture, installations and large-scale public art projects. I look for challenges that will allow me to explore new mediums. I create environments by layering material and interpretation. I try to convey how perception shifts as we move through space.

The connection between nature and artifacts is the focus of my work. Questions of transition, transformation, erosion and metamorphosis engage me. In public art, my approach is to fuse the constraints of the space and the needs of the client so seamlessly with my own vision that the resulting project feels as though neither could have existed alone.

I value the power of art to move one emotionally and psychically.
