“Often we see only the surface of things when in reality there are many levels and layers holding artifacts, histories and clues that hint of something curious and magical lurking beneath the surface waiting to be discovered, excavated and explored.
My work is about discovery and the hint of possibility. It’s about the layers and strata of things substantive, imagined, physical and implicit. I work by accumulating layers of material, images and color that make up the whole of a work, then I go back in and explore, excavate, expose, obscure”.
