Artist Statement and Bio
It is my ultimate hope to inspire people In a world of increasing exposure to information, both useful and not, I try to escape the mental barrage by creating moments of reflectivity and serenity. By isolating tiny facets of nature and the human experience my work encourages the viewer to meditate on the unnoticed.
