We make art to remind us that looking can learn to see about the things we once were and the things we might just be
My work is about the philosophy and poetry of form. It can be viewed from the premise that looking is thinking, and that our ability to see generates what we make of our world. I believe that our basic visual experiences develop into the richness of our cultural existence. My work most often begins with abstract images that inspire writing and installation. Installations wherein the apprehension of relationships between mediums creates dynamic experiences intended to encourage contemplation. Art maintains and discovers the skills we need to apprehend the world beyond us and within us. It helps us navigate the challenges of living with ourselves and with one another. I look to give it shape. I look to dignify the subtleties within us.
