ARTIST STATEMENT: The process of mark-making through drawing, carving or etching is the most direct way for me to translate an experience. I am interested in capturing and unraveling the dualities of everyday, urban life in my imagery.
Through line, light and texture I strive to express the tension and search the spaces between transience and permanence, monotony and mysticism, memory and reality, fear and comfort.
In challenging myself to slow down in a fast-paced urban atmosphere, I am empowered to strengthen the tangible and visualize the invisible. My art is a reflection of the narratives, mysteries and behaviors that are ever-present in our society. I attempt to heighten my own and others' observational awareness with my art.
