Artist Statement

Mortality and chipped nail polish, war and cocktails, missed trains and distant stars. As a human being, I struggle to reconcile the cosmic with the mundane. As an artist, I am compelled to channel my diffuse anxiety and paranoid disorientation into my work.

I have an unrepentant love of the artificial as testament of human activity—capable of breathtaking wonder as well as incomprehensible atrocity. The materials and colors in my work are bright, shiny, aggressive, and unmistakably man-made.
