Artist Statement

 My art is an outlet. It is a place where only I can go. It is a way to not only express myself but to exercise my abilities as an artisit, to experiment with various mediums and the manipulation of those mediums, and to provide myself puzzles that are in need of solving. It can be invigorating even when exhausted.
I like to work in series. It is freedom giving. Some series never make it past the first in the series, but had their beginning with a series in mind. Series tend to allow for building. A new concept is not needed each time I approach a blank paper or canvas. There is already something their to build upon or awaiting to be built upon.
