Statement

STRANGE BEAUTY

Where others see obsolescence and decay,  I find Strange Beauty. 

I live in San Francisco and  my creative mind dwells in the world of different dimensions where my artistic inspiration springs forth.  Galaxies, comets swirl in my brain and spark me to make assemblage that are strange hybrids of animal, plants and machine. Often ancient folklore of intersterllar contact feed my imagination and cause me to create unique stories or narratives for each artwork I make.  Ask me the meaning or story arc of an art piece, and  I’m likely to start sharing the new age fables that connect each character that live in my universe.

I create art however I can: using computer illustrating software,  hand rendering images forn silkscreening.  More likely you’ll find me dismantling an old radio, stereos, and circuits and re-forming them into dynamic and funky assemblage.  I am constantly discovering new ways to make art.

My art has been featured in:  The Bay Times  (2011),  A&U Magazine (2013) and most recently in Adobe Books Back Room Gallery’s book,  “Artist Survival Guide” (2014).   And I was invited to participate in a two-person show at The Reclaimed Room (2014), a gallery space focused on hosting artists who use repurosed materials and 
found objects in dynamic and unique ways.
