ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"I approach my art with the objective of encapsulating light and movement. Just as life never stands still, neither should my artwork. My work explores space and the way we see and perceive our surroundings within that space. In my conceptual work I pay tribute and homage to our multifaceted relationship with nature and self and the intermingling of the two. I attempt to reach out to people across the spectrum hoping they will find something unique in my work they can identify with."
