Artist Statement
My work celebrates our emotions and environments, and the play between them.

Images develop from my experience and intuition about human nature and the natural world. Depending on the medium and the message, the results may be serene or animated. Working in the parallel languages of the narrative and the abstract, my free-flowing design process generates a rhythm akin to visual music.
