Artist Statement

"I believe it is the role of the artist to open the gap toward our highest evolution; to explore beyond known and mapped territories. This path is marked by intuition, inspiration and feeling. When moving in the abstract I exist in this realm, and hope the art I return with can help mark the way, to aim for the essence.

For the most part it is in the indefinable that my work is born - an effort to communicate passion, inspiration, rapture, restlessness. My canvas of steel introduces an entire universe of chance and coincidence. The process is unpredictable, allowing the idea or image I hold inside to release itself in surprising ways, as a new expression of feeling. Only by releasing the mind does creativity flow through, coaxing the potential from the collaboration between chance and vision.

It is my hope that the work, like a map, carries the viewer into the realm of possibility from which it was born."
