Artist Statement

I find my inspiration in themes of transformation and in themes related to the seeking of -- and breaking of -- the connections to a whole. This theme often finds its way into my paintings through the symbolism of islands, signal fires, and the disappearing, icy landscape of northern climes. In my projects, it manifests as an interest in the plight of the refugee and migrant, of those who are displaced or disconnected for reasons outside of their control.
