Artist Statement

 In my works I make post-graffiti, bio-morphic, automatic gestures. I want to create intimate new worlds of wonder where culturally familiar tags of decay mix with a micro/macro flip-flop, pulling the viewer into their world- tumbling from familiar references into other strange passages of bio science fictions.  I’m compelled by images that expand, contract, and morph with lines that grow out of new visual phenomenon like Google Earth or microbiology- continuously in transition and play.  Art Brut, Outsider Art and the Surrealists’ interest in the subconscious help inform my work.  I am creating a visual language that integrates contemporary visual aesthetics and views that only Alice in Wonderland could imagine.
