Artist Statement

My work looks at issues that honor the spirit of human existence. Within my artwork I search for meaning in the relationships between the ideas of storage, shelter, and nourishment.

My artwork is influenced by rural archetypal forms of the western landscape and by many years of experiencing different global cultures.

I look for beauty, balance and grace in my artwork. Through my artwork I try to come to an understanding of myself and the world around me.
