Artist Statement

“The subject matter in my work is often reflective of the intangibility of existentialist philosophy and the duality between the universe and man’s interpretation of “free will.”

Accordingly, my imagery is frequently derived from a profound, emotional response to the unique isolation, complexity, pathos and randomness of human existence and life in the universe.  In order to give these visual metaphors a sense of physicality, my work commonly incorporates a variety of mixed media, ranging from works of oil on canvas to “progressive” states of prints.”
