Artist Statement:

In my work I seek that which engages the power of observation. Aligned with the light of the full and new moons, mixed with the subtle texture of sun flares and eclipses. My work stirs intuition, logic and love into a potent force of light, while charming the shadow. I seek to inspire deep thinking and even deeper feeling. My work asks for a dance with the observer to change the physics of matter, while on a time traveling journey of healing and hope.
