Artist Statement

The creative world that I inhabit in the studio is one where my exploratory process involves planning, and research to construct a narrative map of symbology.

This account is then carefully distilled as the work progresses and is infused with my personal obsessions. With these actions, I attempt to force the work into something that has long fascinated me, the human trajectory of accidents, and chance occurrences.

In this process of mixing fact, fiction, image, and abstraction, I find myself a traveler upon this newly created topography in pursuit of the connective narrative. I attempt a collision of mediums, folding smooth passages into the textural, coaxing the medium out from wells of darkness to emerge upon the surface with glowing color.
