Artist Statement
My work is about energy and spatial ambiguity. Playing with analogies and ambiguity, I create a distorted mix of reality, imagination, and space. My work is dark, ambiguous, and dream-like. Feelings of dissonance with a sense of mystery and unease prevail.

Although these works may incorporate a geometric framework, expressiveness becomes the ultimate driver of the compositions, one mark or layer leading to another and creating the sensations of movement, progression and dissonance.
