Artist’s Statement

My belief is that by having a fuller understanding of our places in the universe we may find both inner and outer peace as a collective. The goal of my art is to aid in forming healthy and sustainable relationships-with and perceptions-of:  ourselves, each other, and our planet.

From the smallest particles of existence, elements combine — networking — to form larger compounds. These compounds then join larger networks to forms cells; cells combine to form larger organisms; organisms form super-organisms and ecosystems, and the pattern continues on with each fractal leap in scale. The boundaries of networks are what define individual selves, and produce the experiences of individual consciousnesses; though everything is connected, and part of everything else. We are the products of the communications of the networked cells of our bodies. We are also like cells in the body of an even larger being.
