Artist Statement

I am inspired by the concept of the Ecstasy, the moment when all is revealed. Although my take on transcendence is often tongue in cheek, superficial, or dry, there is an element of sincerity in my quest to create and understand a sense of order around me. Using pattern and natural phenomena as a substitute for the divine, my work chronicles my simultaneous doubt, hope, and apprehension that all things are knowable.
