Artist Statement

My practice generally references objects from the natural world,particularly skulls and small bone fragments from various animals. It has always been my intention to create artworks that perform beyond the visual and expand into the sensorial. These ideas find common ground with animistic beliefs and the creative processes of the first image-makers.
