ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a student of the great enigmas of our world and the work that I create examines what it is to be human in the 21st century. I lace together the forgotten art of satire and iconoclasm into my own "American Night." What you see is the symbolic and sometimes prophetic narrative of a modern day soothsayer, searching for sacred truths in the paint. Fiercely defiant ,challenging and independent, transcending my contemporaries and the norm.
