Artist Statement

I make art that explores the dichotomies of life in an increasingly populated and technological world. The contemplative quiet we may view and experience in nature rests in contrast to the complexity of systems we deal with daily. My work is based on observation and metaphor. I implicate place and impending change, whether depicting an isolated moment in nature, an aerial expanse below, or an imagined environment – peaceful, numinous, entangled. Change and evolution are constants in life, and my series of works reflect the duality of desire to retain ideal moments and places, while dealing with inevitable advancement and alteration.
