Artist Statement

In general, I like to follow my own path of inspiration and feel that no subject is out of bounds. Sometimes, I like to envision real history in a surreal way, while in other works I seek to portray an imaginary image in a matter-of-fact way. My goal is to merge the life of the mind with the world we think we see with our eyes.
I sometimes compress historical events into one singular image in order to make the passage of time meaningless. As W. Faulkner said “ The past is never dead, it’s not even past.”

When I deal with portrayals of real places, I try and make the viewer reconsider how much strange beauty is in the commonplace of our modern world.
