Artist Statement:

My art work is an inquiry into non-literal communication, what we can experience and know through the invention of new forms. Using various media I pursue imagery that is undefined, but sometimes suggestive, physically substantial, but oftentimes pictorial, devoid of symbols, but seemingly about something in some indirect way. I am interested in imagery that does not convey or reinforce existent information.
