• ARTIST STATEMENT

    I have always had two fundamental interests in life: art and nature, both of them intimately related. My surreal imagery reflects the connection between humans and nature, with strong emphasis on elements like texture, line, and contrast. Whether I am working in mixed media, acrylic, or sculpture my goal is to represent harmony with nature, both directly and indirectly.
