  • Artist - Statement

    I create intimate worlds where culturally familiar tags of decay mix with a micro/macro flip-flop, tumbling from familiar references into strange passages of bio science fictions.

    I"m compelled by images that expand, contract, and morph with lines that grow out of new visual phenomenon like Google Earth or microbiology-continuously in transition and play. Art Brut, Outsider Art and the Surrealists" interest in the subconscious help inform my work.
