Artist Statement/Focus

I create two and three-dimensional works of art, using wood, paper, paint, found materials and collage. Through my work, I find new layers of meaning and ways to communicate emotions and ideas. I skate on the edge between reality and abstraction, swaying gently between these two worlds; looking for connections between color and tight, darkness and reflection, fact and fiction.
