Artist Statement

Art provides the means to make my thoughts tangible, to take what’s in my mind and bring it to the real world for others and myself to experience.  I enjoy using symbols to create something with content, something that has meaning whether it’s pretty or ugly. I think about what I want to say, how I want to say it, and how I can make it interesting.  The content of my art varies and includes social/political commentary, metaphors, stories, aspects of myself, documentation, studies or whatever stirs inside me; I'm limited only by what I can imagine.  I love to show people my ideas and worlds, and learn from how they analyze, interpret and react to them.  Imagination and experience are my kindling and art is the spark. Together they create the fire that allows me to see my world.
