Artist Statement

My interests lie within the fragile and vulnerable states of matter and society.
Through out history we have given deep reverence to the mighty and monumental and have disregarded the importance of vulnerability.

I play with balance, relationships, humor and fear. I relish in the small, intimate details and embrace the impermanence of life and art .

Does art not imitate life?
