About the Artist
As a disabled Veteran who lives in constant pain, I strive to take the brokenness and deterioration of life and present it in a new light. Using found objects and unconventional techniques, my goal is to not simply present the viewer with a piece of art, but offer a transformation of thought. I create environments to step into, offering the viewer an opportunity to experience the art, not just see it. Believing that there is more to life than what we initially see on the surface, layers invite the viewer to dive deeper. Distortion and fractured images create a constant motion in a otherwise static object, offering a dialogue for those feeling trapped by inner turmoil. Found objects take broken and discarded things and offer a new life viewed through a different lens. Light illuminates the dark and broken places within us all, and creates an opportunity for healing.
