Beauty and Decay, Filigree and Shadows

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. Growing up supported by family, friends & teachers, I was encouraged to explore art in multiple forms of media.

The need to make art is akin to the phantom limb concept, where I'm driven to create. Any absence of creativity in my life affects me emotionally, driving me to seek inspiration from the ordinary to the extraordinary. I express the culmination of my environment in my quest to create original art.

Like a camera's eye, I see the world in various shades of grey from the brightest whites to the deepest shadows. My work has often focused on the complexity of the female form and how it relates to its environment. I create these images, sketches and three-dimensional representations (as seen in the Homunculus doll series) by listening to and looking for the unexpected. It takes many hours of sketching before a vision is really born.

In the end, I create art to leave a non-verbal legacy, a glimpse into how I see the world, a sort of immortality when all is said and done.
