Artist Statement: 

As an artist, I am fascinated by fleeting moments. As I create, I wish to convey the prevailing mood of a scene before it vanishes forever. When seemingly ordinary subjects are captured in flux and cast in a light full of emotional content, they evoke the breadth and sweep of an entire world. Whatever the subject matter,the inherent drama is the spark that ignites my creativity.”
