ARTIST STATEMENT

At first glance my work might appear quite abstract. Closer inspection reveals glimpses, fragments, or passages of potentially more recognizable shapes. Utilizing the traditional mediums of paint, printmaking and collage with the contemporary medium of digitally generated images, I explore the concepts of perception, deception, invisibility and camouflage, both visually and metaphorically.
