Artist Statement

I begin with ideas I want my art to, in some way, “discuss” – to be visual vehicles for an expanded conversation on some specific topic.

I find precedents in early art and then elaborate on those through my own technical and expressive abilities. The result is a creative interaction that is often surprising to me – and fascinating to my clients.

My subjects are mostly futuristic, rendered into figurative images that sometimes contain symbolic elements, combined with colorful forms or landscapes, to create the coded message in the artwork.
