“As a visual artist, I am motivated by the conviction that true art transcends mere depictions of what we observe or think we perceive to reflect a search for reality. This activity encourages us to view the world through fresh eyes and to rediscover our inner child, who embraces our ability for play, wonder, imagination, and a sense of the beauty of life.
I am confronted more frequently by the complexity, ambiguity, and contradictory aspects of the world as my knowledge of it continues to expand and evolve. Rather than being scared by these truths, I’m motivated to transform them into visually intriguing, meaningful, and sometimes illusionistic experiences. Through my art, I hope to demonstrate how there are still options and possibilities even in the face of turmoil.”
