Artist Statement

I work from my imagination, and often in a studio without visual references. My inspiration comes from specific places, but the work does not represent any one place or view; rather, it is a sense of the places I have seen and know well, fictitiously portrayed.

I enjoy setting up processes for artmaking that create un-factored results – such as using aerosol spray paint with masking elements or pooling ink that runs unexpectedly across the substrate. I embrace the accidental occurrences inherent in my artmaking process. Over my career, I have drifted across a continuum between representation and abstraction.
