Artist Statement

My art is a visual expression of the intersection between my dreams & my physical experiences.  My eye is drawn to the line where light & shadow meet.  Through the play of light & shadow I create drawings that explore positive & negative space.  Contrasting color choices create the needed tension to empahsize my subject matter.  I like the environment of my color compositions to be a dynamic contrast to the structured planned percision of my hand cut stencils. The stencil images then inhabit a colorful chaotic world that is a metaphor for my own life experiece.
