ARTIST INFORMATION CONTACT INFORMATION

My drawings bring abstracted objects to the heightened level of icon in a world which bridges the inanimate and spirit, separate from human intervention, yet connected. Using the formal tools of an artist -- line, shape, color, composition and light, I have attempted to construct a world which mirrors my belief that all the answers to our earthly questions lie in the metaphysical world. Through this exploration of object as icon, I hope to touch some universal aspect of our human experience -- color it, simplify it, elevate it.
