Artist Statement

Sometimes during the day I hear or see something that transforms an ordinary moment into an extraordinary moment.

It could be something simple such as a man walking his dog, a child at play, or bird signing, but these moments shift me into a state of awe, and for a second my thoughts freeze, allowing me to experience a pure moment when I feel so connected to what I am observing that I become the observed. 

Perhaps this is why some people cry when overwhelmed by something beautiful like a piece of music or a scene in nature.  This is why I pour all my energy into my art. I want to capture that which touches me deeply so others too may experience a connection to something beyond the ordinary.
