Work Statement

My art is a joyous celebration infused with rich, vibrant colors, lively patterns and the alluring spirit of childlike play. Across multiple bodies of work, I make art that evokes amusement, delight and harmony. Through my expression of art and play, I wish to conciliate the viewer with a transcendent state of joy and spiritual wholeness.

My specific use of playful colors, patterns and materials is meant to give the viewer an easy entry point into the work; to democratize the experience of the art. By disarming the viewer’s resistance, the work becomes a mirror onto themselves. This is paramount, as the viewer’s participation with the art (intellectually, emotionally, spiritually) is the only goal of the art. At the heart of this, what the work communicates is an awareness of art as play, and by extension, all of life as a creative act.
