ARTIST STATEMENT

My art is a way to cherish the present moment and our past. It is a poetic response to specific issues, current events and disappearing moral values. I aim to create aesthetically beautiful, compelling and thought provoking art in a simple and quiet manner.

Art provides the imagery that allows me to present my ideas. My art changes depending on what I want to say, and its form is dictated by the subject matter. It could end up as an installation, sculpture, print, movie, or audio.

Art needs to be beautiful, but beauty can come from ugliness as long as it is presented poetically.
