Artist Statement

My art attempts to convey the essence of a moment, the intangible “something” that words struggle to define and that makes a moment profound. I believe that the intrigues of this world are nothing but playful dances between light and shadow…physically, spiritually, and metaphorically. Therefore, successfully portraying the tug of war between light and shadow is essential to accomplishing my goal as an artist.

I work  with thin, translucent glazes which allow certain areas of my work to glow while at the same time creating spatial depth. This push and pull of lights and darks, of foreground and background, and of selective detail within a composition allows me to steer the viewer’s eye into a particular visual passages in a specific order. In the end, it is my goal for the viewer to experience the essence that I feel makes a moment worthy of depiction.
