Artist statement: Inspired by film noir and experimental surrealist films my most recent work is a series of short Black and white video loops produced exclusively with composited computer animation. I consider my films experimental. I am interested in dreams, hallucinations, and delusions...the uncanny. Like the films of Maya Deren and the macabre drawings of Alfred Kubin, these short vignettes are intended to suggest, but not define, a narrative.
Born in Kansas City, MO, received my BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1991. MFA ( 2000) from the University of New Orleans Fine Arts Graduate Program. I now live and work in Brooklyn, NY.
