Artist Statement: 

Exploration is the simplest way to assay my work.

I speculate in a variety of artistic mediums, conceptualizing a piece or body of work based on visual clues and their subsequent sensory perception. The material often guides the message, and in this way can be seen as a vessel for the purpose the work ultimately serves. Photography has been the foundation though I willfully stray into music, video, painting, large scale installations, sculpting in wood and found objects. Common threads exist though I consider those  irrelevant. My aesthetic is a natural abstraction, a graphic documentation, a personal dialogue, an invitation to poetry.
