Artist Statement


My creative process is organic and rarely preconceived. I have had traditional training in still life and figure drawing, and I find myself drawn more to the surreal, and fantastic. I create abstract art that flows from my psyche. I am not concerned with perfecting every mark I make because I see the beauty in the imperfections.


I am inspired by nature, mysticism, symbolism, and the sacred. I like to vary my process and medium often. I sometimes use gold leaf in following with the illuminated manuscripts of antiquity. As an archaeologist by training, my works always invoke mysterious long lost eras.
