Artist Statement

Artificial landscapes move stealthily throughout my new work.  In playing with domestic throwaways, fled treasures, and broken scraps and bits, the borders seem to get fuzzy -- often hidden, murky, illusory.   Ideas of rural expanses breed as ambiguities rise and fall throughout the work.  I am continually pushing and pulling, filling and editing, climbing and descending, revealing and concealing through my work.
 
Ideas of space, time, land, dioramas, farms and peek-inside panoramic sugared eggs dance in my head daily.
