artist statement:

I live in longing,
born of adventures explored and missed.
places that half exist –
familiar and foreign, not quite known
call to me.

There are worlds that reside in-between
deep in the collective imagination
and I push off from the shore in search of them.

My work reflects the desire to know and not know –
to bushwhack through some distant land and
bring back secrets and mysteries.

My physical travels have incited in me this
lust for the exotic, a quest for the unseen,
and when i am anchored, I move freely to
places of the imagination in a continual state
of openness and discovery.

My studio becomes my ship on open water.
