I am a painter and printmaker, also working as a freelance scenic designer.
I feel that my job as an artist is rooted in relationships. To recognize them and to nurse them proves ourselves dutiful and committed to self-awareness. With my art, I recognize relationships primarily through the context of the visual. I place focus on tying objects and ideas together and on bridging gaps. Simple and often clever connections are established visually in my work. Viewers are rewarded for visually exploring and making discoveries. By working back toward my roots as an artist, I have been able to discover how to make connections on a fundamental level. In doing so, my work has become more and more accessible. It is through this accessibility that viewers are able to partake in the scene and rejoice over its imagery.
