Artist Statement: “In my work, I look to transcend time to illuminate the complex thread of mankind. Exploring the opposing elements and the idea of beauty and light, I believe one must embrace the dark truths that are as much part of our lives as the innate pull towards hope. Light and dark, order and chaos, the cerebral and the instinctive – each requires the other in order for harmony to ebb and flow.”
