Artist Statement

When I see something, and feel for it, I have a need to portray it. To show it. It is meditative, a way of focussing on the uniqueness of the subject. Observing every moment, shape, movement and then somehow interpreting it and showing what I have experienced. This is an amazing experience and this is what humans do.

Everything is delicate. Life is delicate and seems to be so rare in the universe. The intricacy and complexity is incredible and all we can truly do is observe it and try to tell our own version of the story. Humans can do this and this is special.
As an artist, I try to observe, interpret and show without intentionally changing the subject matter. Yet it always changes and is never the same. The artist always leaves something behind. The filter we look through distorts no matter how close we look and we leave a little bit of ourselves, an imprint, to communicate with. This is the individual and this is our connection.

I try to show the individual whether it is a creature or an object and I want them to have a life of their own. To feel tactile and carry emotion. This is what I hope to share.
