My work is essentially an exploration of structure, color, and process combined with tension between format and image. I often employ simple systems to facilitate the discovery of new formal combinations where unexpected results are embraced.

While I work, I listen to audio books. Even though this doesn’t have a direct correlation to image production, it does get me thinking about networks. Over time, the many stories and ideas interweave and become a grand combined narrative that then becomes associated with the imagery. What forms is a network in which people, ideas, places, and things across time and space become connected. The result is a long-distance view of the human condition in which life and experience, story and image, become layered and compressed.
