Artist Statement

The principle governing my creative practice is visual generosity. I believe in providing a rich viewing experience that captivates and enthralls the viewer. My goal is to arrest the viewer with wonder and draw them near through curiosity. I want to slow the viewer down and slow down the entire art experience. Time is needed for imagery to penetrate the mind where connections are forged and significance of meaning can be derived. The highly detailed line drawings that I create using ballpoint pens are rooted in the vanitas tradition which invites viewers to reflect on the transient nature of life and beauty through the contemplation of symbolically resonant objects and creatures.
