Artist Statement

Millenia before humans developed writing, they used art to communicate their ideas. Paintings on cave walls told stories of the hunt and cataloged the types of game in the area for any that took refuge in the cave. Creating a prehistoric survival guide using narrative art. As civilization developed, humans had time to think of things other than survival. We started using art to illustrate the unexplained and our imaginations went wild. Giant bones found while plowing a field became stories of dragons that terrified villages and titans who fought against gods. For most of its existence, the written word remained the exclusive right of the privileged, or elite. While illustrations remained the language of everyone, with its ability to transcend literacy and language barriers. I’m driven by this universality of art. The idea that I can make an image, and whether a few hours, or centuries later, someone else encounters it and it can have an effect on them. Without ever knowing who I am, my personal story, or even my language, that image can trigger a reaction in the viewer. It can spark a thought, start a conversation, or even make someone smile. This is the magic of art and what I seek to achieve in my work.
