Home » Artist Statement

My studio work draws upon the observation, invention and integration of details from natural and built environments. I compose each image by synthesizing a medley of disparate visual qualities and material characteristics (natural phenomena and materials, artifacts and architecture). Intricate, subtle rendering and subdued light serve to enhance an atmospheric sense of quiet mystery. A unique, believable image that never wholly existed in nature emerges from this variety of sources, suggesting the passage of time and the tension between mechanically constructed and naturally created forms.
