 Objective

Writing about visual art is my passion. My goal is to reflect the myriad ways creativity is expressed and to convey the soul of the artist in a way that is accessible to the reader, yet challenges them. Writing about art completes the artistic process by providing an intelligent viewer reaction. I strive to write informed observation and make judgments that are more than just opinion. To expand upon this, I hope to begin curating exhibitions that are more than a sum of their parts.
