Artist Statement

My inspirations are many and my art is endless. I am interested in all aspects of the human condition, internal landscapes, (both personal and collective), sense of place, the construct of time and the creative process. My thoughts, feelings, humor, concerns, and even fears are ever present in the work, regardless of where the center-point is. Narrative and symbolism are the main tools I apply to explore these themes through collage, mainly implementing surrogates to complete the mission.

I use what's around me, employing everyday, ephemeral materials to process my surroundings on an internal as well as external level using a mainly mixed-media collage and drawing. The narratives and symbolism explored in my work are meant to be common denominators, yet mysterious and open-ended.
