I am an artist who has worked in several mediums and has been focused on art-making since I could talk. My pieces are the physical evidence left by an on-going inquiry into who I am and my relationship to the world, and they allow me to see change in myself.
Making art for me is like breathing: underpinning my day-to-day concerns are cycles of inspiration and expression. I look to art for evidence of human awareness and concern, and I invest my own thoughts and caring into my art-work. My measure of my work is if others are moved by it, and I value my work for the dialogue it creates between me and its viewers. I am continually amazed at the stories that my pieces draw out of others, deepening my understanding of the images I've made.
I believe that by choosing to engage with something, we encounter an opportunity to develop and to become. Art is the language I understand with which to engage the world.
