|My work gravitates toward the visionary with images culled from archetype, dreams & surroundings. In the studio, I am often exploring a kind of dark dream where secret games are played, and nightmares can be beautiful.
Im not interested in conventional forms of beauty rather in the kind that has scars, deformities, crooked teeth, the occasional malignance. My angels are not perfect beings but instead reflect stages of human growth where hard lessons are learned and spirit is transformed.
While I often include an element of humor in my work, there tends to be a subtext or an undertow. Its important for me to face the fear, anxiety, anger and allowing them to just be. I believe in maintaining a relationship with my demons as well as my angels neither of which could exist without the other.
