Artist Statement
My art is a journey of personal discoveries transfigured into lyrical surreal images. The inspiration behind my creative process is an ongoing fascination with nature as a mirror of life’s common experiences.

As a mixed media artist, I strive to achieve a harmonious balance through the use of organic and contextual referencing. The image’s transfiguration of the underlying significant tension between illusion and reality is often revealed in the mythic sublime.

It is my hope that the viewer’s glance or gaze will become a passageway to the wonderment of discoveries found in our universal evolutionary bond.
