Artist Statement

My art displays a process that is linear and transparent.  The works are visually recognizable but contain a shifting and unpredictable perspective. The simple becomes unexpectedly elaborate; the ordinary metamorphose into distinctiveness.  The goal is to create work that is inherently distinctive and belies its repetitiveness. 

I am interested in art offerings based on a different perspective of form (identity) and which are already defined and measured.  The deviated perspectives evolve from a purposefully idiosyncratic approach to creativity.  I create nuances to challenge the ideas of identity, and I create just enough expressive variations to the seemingly recurring shapes.
