ARTIST STATEMENT   
         
My work is a physical expression of my experience of being human. Thoughts and observations create the impulse to make an object, or a series, and in this way the work is a visual footprint of my thinking. My paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints and installations explore light, space, and layering while visually alluding to the passage of time and my place within a continuum of human experiences. I use objects such as, rope, thread, paper, wax, and paint in a repetition of line, form, and asemic gesture. These elements are metaphors for memories and thoughts held together over time. My work is a conversation about how I connect to my past; How I embrace the present moment; How I pass along parts of myself to future generations. When I work with materials, I explore these ideas much the way a scientist conducts an experiment and then I let my hands tell the story of my findings.

About


ARTIST STATEMENT   
         
My work is a physical expression of my experience of being human. Thoughts and observations create the impulse to make an object, or a series, and in this way the work is a visual footprint of my thinking. My paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints and installations explore light, space, and layering while visually alluding to the passage of time and my place within a continuum of human experiences. I use objects such as, rope, thread, paper, wax, and paint in a repetition of line, form, and asemic gesture. These elements are metaphors for memories and thoughts held together over time. My work is a conversation about how I connect to my past; How I embrace the present moment; How I pass along parts of myself to future generations. When I work with materials, I explore these ideas much the way a scientist conducts an experiment and then I let my hands tell the story of my findings.
