Artist Statement:

I must begin my artist statement with a declaration of my general distaste for statements. Who am I to state anything? I do not claim to know what my art is to any scientific degree; I only have thoughts as to what my art might be.  So, what I think it might be is partly a reflection of my experience of life up to this point, and at this time and place. It’s confusing, it’s needlessly complicated, it can be both frightening and at the same time hilarious…. AND there’s way too much to look at, to listen to, and to inquire about to take all of it in–never mind to make sense of it all, and there’s also a fun little narrative involved. However, I wish the viewer to bring their own thoughts and statements to the piece; these are just as important, if not more so, than the one who created it.
