Artist's Statement

"Art affects us on a personal level; what may be interpreted as disturbing to one person, may be beautiful to another. The piece of art we fall in love with is the one which touches our soul and is there when we need it most."

"Although sometimes dressed in a gothic, mythological or fantastical style, the subject matter of my work is modern living and our innermost reactions to it. The infrastructure of life is delicate and complex and I am forever searching for an understanding of why the world is the way it is, and our role in it."
