“Is.” - Parmenides
Making art is my process of discerning the world around me by examining the relationships between how a person exists and how I perceive their existence through the rendering and observation of their qualities, both physical and intangible. People around me have always intrigued me because everybody operates differently, and what may make one-person tick, can make another tock, but we all share many commonalities. Making art is an attempt for me to express the inexpressible.
