Artist Statement
My work is a meditation on the act of perceiving. I use art as a portal to access the borders of perception, allowing slight shifts in how we register the details of our quotidian landscape to open us to other levels of consciousness.

While drawing remains my primary medium, the other work I do in photography and video share in common with drawing a spiritual resonance: to create visual dissonances that reflect back on our experience of the self, and in so doing connect us more deeply to our place in the eternal present.
