Artist Statement

Art is what you make it.  Even better, art is what makes you.

I consider myself fortunate that I knew at a very young age that I would be visualizing, designing, creating (and, yes, critiquing) art in some form for the rest of my life.  This has been both a bit of a blessing and a curse, but, overall, I consider myself fortunate that I knew something so significant about myself so early.  Creating art came easily and proved to be inspiring.

As an artist, I have worked in many different areas, and I have no set style or technique, which I would consider a trap or dead end to the growth process.  In my view, the quintessential artist places no boundaries or limits on his or her ideas during the creative process.  Any thought or technique is fair game.  For that reason, I hope and believe that my work will constantly evolve and reflect my need to express myself as an artist and connect with others.

Ultimately, I would like to be known for the breadth and uniqueness of my work, as well as the emotional impact I hope it has on individuals whom I may never meet but have found a place in their personal space for one of my works.
