ARTIST STATEMENT

Structure, real or imagined, lay the foundation for my work. Using form and color to define space, playing with what can be seen as well as unseen. I believe everything in life is interconnected. All of creation; sky, earth, & water with every-living-thing in between...created to work as a system.
