As an artist I see art as
a form of communication that has a power beyond
that of words. Through imagery I attempt to portray
ideas that words cannot, like the archetypal beauty
that connects all things. I attempt to create a
positive experience for the viewer, while also hoping
to make a positive commentary on the world.
demonstrates an abstraction of nature. My inspiration
comes from nature and the Japanese ideals of wabi-sabi,

Things we normally view as negative become beautiful.
Loneliness, old age, and death become beautiful
because they are inevitable and represent the constant
flux of the universe. I attempt to address this
idea of the movement of eternity, of everything
either coming from or returning to nothingness.
My work urges the viewer to contemplate the relationship
between oneself, nature, and the universe.
