ARTIST STATEMENT: My goal is to help people visualize that which most do not notice in their everyday lives and to touch upon those thoughts and emotions for which few have time for in their daily experiences. I strive to confront people with the simplicity, clarity, form and beauty of the normal everyday world that is always before us and always missed because of our natural tendency towards attention deficiency and lack of comprehension in this ultra high speed world of instant gratification. I encourage people to stop and reflect upon the world as it could be seen should one choose to take the time and look.
