Artist Statement

My work combines natural and celestial elements to express the emotive quality of light and space. I work in a variety of media to create a luminosity that gives life to every moment. I’ve explored emotion through the subject of a personified abandoned barn finding its place in the universe. Based on my own experiences of emotional abandonment, the Abandoned Series explores the barn's dramatic journey from separation to connection. Even when all hope is dashed by hurricane waves, it still discovers its inner light. Now that it's found peace, I'm exploring the light and emotions of storms and open skies.
