Artist Statement

My work is the product of an ongoing conversation and debate between myself, my materials and my direct experiences. Drawing from an expanding personal iconography and treating my materials and surfaces as collaborative elements rather than simply tools, my work fluctuates between abstraction and figuration, sometimes within the same piece. In doing so, it attempts to trap experience within these finished surfaces and imbue the resulting images with a totemic resonance that vibrates outside the spectrum of specific meaning.
