I create art to immerse myself in the world.
My subjects are highly personal.
Relationships, emotions and life experiences inspire my work.
About My Recent Work
My recent work is a reaction to the physical and mental noise of the media and technology that are increasingly drowning out the subtleties of human interactions necessary to build love, compassion and empathy. I often wonder about technology's influence as a relationship middleman. What happens when we are not face to face with one another to see the subtle clues of body language? When we don’t have to react in real time to the consequences of our behavior? To counteract the emerging dehumanization prevalent in the media I make images highlighting what love and compassion look like. Rejecting the addictive over stimulation that our electronic world delivers, I turn to simple line drawings to represent all humans without limiting it by adding defining details.
My current body of work includes, drawings, photography, mixed media work including sculpture and site specific installations.
