Artist Statement
With my drawings, my goal is creating wholly enigmatic entities.  A fusion of primitive, modernist, and otherworldly forms to produce something or someone that is a powerful arresting yet dreamlike image.
All my work is the result of a personal metaphysical investigation, to create a vast and dynamic body of work that includes all the aspects of my imagination externalized into the larger world, to capture, collaborate and hopefully colonize the imaginations of others.
