Artist Statement

It is through a quiet observation that most of my work comes to life.  Introverted and imaginative, I spend my life in a state of observation and interpretation; I am mostly drawn to the colors of the fading day, the patterns and details presented in the natural world, the stories that come to life via melodies, harmonies and lyrics in my favorite music.  I take interest in the darker side of things and find myself representing a personal and inner duality in my illustrations; I am intrigued by the complexity of our perceptions, decisions and motivations that make up the experience of life and my concepts are usually inspired by personal experiences.  I don’t seek it out, I let the images come to me, and I capture the details using pen and paper.  With my work, I hope to convey the emotions and beautiful details that make up my existence, and encourage the viewer to take a closer look within to appreciate their own.
