Statement

My goal as an artist is to create something eye catching, vivid, far from subtle.  I want to draw questions in the viewer's mind of the piece's design and origin. The works I produce stem from little or no conceptual planning. Beginning with improvisation, a small idea grows into something concrete. I discover its meaning as the piece evolves and only fully recognize its energy upon completion. I am driven primarily by emotion; to give my work a conceptual meaning or intention is not always possible. 

My inspiration comes from many sources, often drawn from the energy of childhood. I am intrigued to know what a piece means to the viewer, the memories and visions that the scene brings to one's mind. I challenge myself to create art unlike anything I've seen, yet I understand that all creations are a reflection of many sources. I have pushed my artistic boundaries through painting, photography, sculpture, and digital art, and am now combining all of these media in my current work.

Moving through and beyond the world of digital art, I express my work in physical form through lenticular imagery and resin encapsulations. The resin pieces combine traditional and non-traditional media.  They come in the form of intricate wall hangings and cubical encapsulations of scenes suspended in time. As each layer is cast into the mold, objects are put into place to be 'frozen in time' creating something unachievable with glass or traditional sculpture techniques. Variations in lighting and perspective unveil the multi layered detail of each piece. 

The lenticular pieces play with dimension in a different way. Each piece produces an illusion of depth from a 2 dimensional surface (technical explanation). I have taken this traditionally commercial technology and brought it to the fine art stage.
