Artist Statement

The primary source of my inspiration is the Natural World, the living
embodiment of Beauty, Truth, and Wisdom. All around us are connections —
seen and unseen— that reveal the very essence of Life.

I perceive Creativity as an unbounded, holistic process that is at the very core
of our personal experience as human beings. In general, creativity is present
whether a person expresses this impulse through art-making, through
witnessing art or through intense engagement with Life.

Essentially, my artistic practice is an exploration of Nature’s elegant forms,
materials, and ecosystems; the relative crudeness of man-made objects,
substances, and processes; and deep explorations into personal intuition and
imagination. Each piece reveals elements of whimsy and fantasy while
simultaneously revealing something innate to our ability for sensuality and
conscious awareness.

My art is created using a combination of 3D computer graphics —the same
software programs used to create Video Games, Visual Effects in film, and 3D-
Printed forms— and traditional materials of artistic mark-making such as ink,
graphite, and colored pencil on paper. Both the intricacy and precision of
digitally-generated forms and the immediacy and fluidity of hand-generated
physical representations delight me as an artist.
