My artwork is the product of my interest in how we see and relate to our environments. I am fascinated by people and their relationship to technology, nature, and each other. Time, perception, and emotion also enter into my work. For me, the concept of each piece determines its form. The art I make relies strongly on the materials used in order to build a visual language, yet these are guided by the content. I allow the work to develop from my thoughts, feelings, and experiences, but the meaning that I put into the art is not as important as what the viewer takes from it and consequently does with it. I think of art as a tool for communication as well as a launchpad for new ideas.
