    Artist Statement:   As an artist, I combine an intuitive approach to image making with the structured framework of learned technique. Ultimately, by combining the emotional, the spiritual and the rational, I aspire to achieve a balance within myself. My intent is to elicit an emotional response, in hopes that the viewer will have more than just a superficial experience. The conceptual framework and how it is best translated ultimately dictates the medium I will use. Through this method of art making I am always learning, and through the act of creating I find meaning and truth about myself and my environment.

    Even though I am mostly recognized as a painter, I do not label myself as such, and instead consider myself an artist who enjoys delving into new processes. When making art, translating the idea is what is most important and the most essential part of what I do. The process of making art is the most important part of what I do, more important than the final object. When I am creating I feel I transcend this world and enter another more spiritual realm. Art making, especially painting is a form of healing for me. It is a form of meditation or flow similar to dance or prayer.
