Artist Statement


Art has been an integral part of my world since I could hold a crayon.  I am constantly seeking new ways in which to express my ideas and enjoy playing with as many mediums as I can get my hands on.  I am particularly fond of painting and drawing although I have been known to play with plaster, resins, facepaint/costuming, clay and steel over the years. I am deeply inspired by surreal artists such as Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Anne Bachelier, Michael Parkes and H.R. Giger.  I am entranced by the delicate balance of beauty between the light and dark aspects of life and work to weave stories that take my audience on that journey.  My current series focuses on the emotional impact of human connection in the digital age.
