Artist Statement

“My ideas spring from a visceral reaction to the materialistic and superficial mindset which permeates modern culture.  Most of my images start off as sketches on post-it notes and scraps of paper.  After a period of gestation they are enlarged, transferred to illustration board, and fleshed out in watercolor, pencil and ballpoint pen.  They often consist of landscapes of hallucinatory menace populated by beings engaged in peculiar behavior and rituals - performed to transcend the rational mind and corporeal existence.  A recurring motif is the number sixteen.  It appears in my work in various incarnations because I view sixteen as a symbol of wholeness and inner balance, something I am often trying to achieve in my own life.”
