Artist Statement

  My work has always been about the everyday, the culling of ideas gained from observing and interpreting the world. I am intrigued by contradictions, acknowledging the fact that two opposing ideas can be entertained simultaneously. For this reason, aspects of surrealism make sense to me, especially combinations, juxtapositions, and transformations. Such transformations hopefully reflect those ineffable moments when non-linked images co-exist or collide, sparking a new interpretation of the human condition.
