Artist Statement:
My work explores the depth of a surface and how much information can be conveyed in a finite space. I execute this exercise with varied themes: landscape and beast to pure abstraction. Place (early America, the desert), nature (Devil's Tower, Wyoming), animals, iconography and outer space are great motivators. The colors I choose are vibrant to complement the elemental drawing and also serve as a nod to pop art.
