Artist's Statement

Art for Art's sake and image or the sake of image - Each of my works can be seen as an image conjuring a moment, feeling, idea, or memory into a pictorial reality.

I am an artist who's work can not adhere to any one medium. My work is mainly drawing, sculpture, painting based, and I have most recently begun to create artists' books.
