Artist Statement

The view from where I'm standing is pretty wild.

My visions are of heroes, the landscapes of parallel universes, the charms of a child's smile, the horrors of human wreckage, or maybe all of these at once; but I believe seeing the world in a different way than "usual" is something you need to have on your bucket list.

After childhood, when the heavy curtains of socialization and respectability begin to come down, many are deprived of the ability to see in ways other than dreadfully "normal" -- and that's a pity.

Creating art is my way of wrenching back those curtains so that you can also take in the view from the windows through which I look. In fact, that's my spiritual path and mission.

After all, I'm an artist; and that's what artists do.
