Creating works that represent something undeniably "human" is an endless source of inspiration for me. While working within the abstract, I attempt to conjure something that is not fleeting, not meaningless and not something purely intellectual.

Our lives and our world are constructed within that delicate balance between thought and emotion, and it is my hope that my work does not reflect the geometry, organization, and exactness of our reality, but the passion, chaos and melancholy of that experience.
