Artist Statement:

My work has become increasingly narrative. Symbolism, both collective and personal, is prevalent in my work as it deals with the evidence of humankind’s existence through artifacts. I am reacting to man’s preoccupation with cheating death and his creating representative objects, tokens and icons in an attempt to achieve this immortality. I am intrigued, amazed and frightened at the process of nature’s power to reclaim, and am dealing with my own mortality.
