I consider myself a storyteller. I employ shape, color, and spatial relationships as a vehicle to interpret the immense, the philosophical, the cognitive, and the mundane. Collected stories and images are processed and filtered until what remains are simple quietly poetic acts.  What emerges is a retelling in an attempt to gain insight, analyze, and search for a deeper understanding of my role within and reactions to the contemporary experience.
