Artist Statement


My work captures and makes tangible the sensation of being confronted with splendor, and is a conduit for recording impressions of my lived experience. I use the tools of sculpture, painting, drawing and printmaking to decipher the world around me representing the interplay of natural landscape, people, places, and memory through layering, mark-making, pattern, color, and the construction of space. Through process and a variety of materials I have developed a vocabulary that begins with chaos and endeavors toward order; this thought is physically borne out in multi-layered sculptures and implied in the fantastical color combinations and intricacies of repeating forms found in my paintings. My work contains the liberty of revision, obliteration and convergence as the process moves toward clarity.
