ARTIST STATEMENT

I make things. 

I show people how to make things. 

I have an insatiable desire to create, to explore, to understand. 

I work with my hands. 

I work with my head.

 

My works intention is to provide just enough information, allowing for a narrative without delving into total non-representationalism. Leaving room for interpretation as well as a little mystery, I hope, adds to the viewing experience. My work in graphic design and general fascination with pop culture are heavy influences on my work.
