Artist Statement ~

 

I make art to communicate and explore. Visual language has the potential to communicate psychological understandings about the human condition both collectively and individually. Art can be like a mirror, showing us, with any luck, our truest selves and universal humanity. This obsession propels me to continue to make, so that I may inch my way closer to understanding.
