“Recent work invokes organically occurring forms and elemental ideas. I utilize both contemporary cultural metaphors and a raw symbolism resonant within ancient imagery, creatures, myths and philosophies to access enduring themes. I work to tease out wonder and mindfulness. My current practice is complex, not complicated, and the key to its ideation resides within a willingness to entertain such a subtle, but quintessential, distinction.”
