Artist's Statement

I've always had an appreciation for the beauty found in motion and mass. My work records and creates kinetic movement. My work also explores the theories of science, both the far-fetched and the widely accepted. Science comes ever closer to uncovering the essence of matter, defining existence and connecting everything to an all-pervasive energy.
