Artist Statement

My childhood was powerful. It was full of magic, play, dreaming, fear, and wonder. James Joyce said, “When a fortunate rhythm has been struck by the artist, you experience a radiance. You are held in aesthetic arrest. That is the epiphany.” As a visual artist, my aim is to strike a rhythm between the interior of my life, the things that are cached in my memory, feelings and dreams, and my exterior life.

I hope my work will be seen as imaginative investigations of my world, inside and outside. I hope it is full of strange juxtapositions and unplanned resonances. I hope it will be seen as miniature worlds which help not only me but the viewer recapture wonder, magic and a fortunate rhythm.
