Artist's Statement

My work attempts to create portals that reveal the constant mutation of seemingly recognizable imagery; alternate imagined spaces where time stretches and stops. Condensed clusters of activity are balanced with meditative breaks that allow reflection on physical space. A trail is formed of personal hieroglyphics, a compilation of seemingly meaningless symbols creating imagery, mimicking nature. Connections and pathways overlap, repeat and obscure in playful and obsessive configurations.
