Artist Statement

Throughout my work I’ve always been interested in the order in which something was made. Whether it was a geometric abstraction, a figurative painting, or a room size installation, the process of constructing a narrative has been foremost in my mind.

I use narration not only to give meaning to events, but also, to give meaning to the reflection needed to formulate the events in a believable way. In this way, reflection is the beginnings of imagination. In my view, to imagine is to formulate disparate images out of the disarray of our own experiences in order to create a meaningful story.

My intention is to render enough imagery whether in the form of words alone; or as words and pictures working together; or as pictures alone, so that the viewer can reflect and compose a narrative using his own imagination.
