Artist Statement

I build what I imagine, there’s a lot going on in there, so I will be busy for a while.

My role is not to be static, but to be active, to always question that which surrounds me in my environment and life. By virtue of my creative voice, I have the capacity to draw others in as well. It is a powerful role, one that I passionately embrace. The duality in this pursuit is that no matter how I try, I can only tell my story and it is influenced and formed by the world around me. I cannot speak for others. However, I believe a primary function of art is to be obstruent, to trip one up, to force the viewer and artist alike to have to respond, think, to be moved. The direction is of no consequence. The movement is everything. This is how I can transport others into my work.
