Artist Statement

My work is concerned with our natural world, how it falls into dreams and is affected by dreamers. Idyllic, simplistic, or plastic, decorative in its dynamism. Short stories told in a voice of spatial experiments, motifs, and natural forms. When these three are melded together in a picture, they create a wholly new depiction of spatial relation, in which decoration, space, and the figure coalesce.
