Artist's Statement

I am interested in isolating points of wonder or astonishment that defy common experience. These confluences lead my work to visual trickery, the quasi-spiritual, and found illusions. I focus on art’s ability to depict the moment when words fall away, a breathless stasis poised as high drama in frozen action.
