Artist Statement​


My work explores the quiet simplicity of things. I convey my sentiments through visual interpretations of natural forms by using a subtle application of color, unique abstraction, and a delicate touch.


I intend for my imagery to counter the current onslaught of hurried visuals, increasingly limited attention spans, and ugliness that our society tends to create and focus on.


My work allows me to reintroduce the necessary link to the natural world that often dissipates as our human lives progress and become ever so complex.

Sometimes, I feel we all need to get back down to Earth-
even if only for a moment.
