I have always been interested in mans relationship to the natural world. Whatever medium I work in, painting, drawing, sculpture or video, I get my ideas from a place of personal experience. My work is about the human condition in connection to spirit, science and history.
My painting practice is about process and discovery through making the work. My hope is that the finished piece reflects the human condition, the environment and beauty.
