Statement

 

2019

An artist doesn’t need to wait for a lightning bolt of inspiration to create deep and impactful work. That said, I do draw creative fuel from from the natural world, places I have lived, the work of other artists, and my emotional response to current events. A playful interest in abstracted anthropomorphic forms can be seen across all my work which, teetering between frenetic and calm, stand in for the fragility of the human condition.

I see art as my way of seeking balance and perspective during times of anxiety and disruption. I also recognize its power to connect disparate peoples and remind them of their common humanity. All individuals have the potential to create and all have the power to do good.
