I am attracted to urban and rural decay. I find beauty in the images and textures that have occurred over time on buildings and objects, through the effects of man and nature. To this end, my work is a constructed history that is unable to be contained in any moment, time or place. My work is created through the manipulation of collage, as well as applying and stripping away paint. No certain sense of what will come next, images manifest yet remain undetermined. I engage emotional, intellectual and aesthetic consciousness. The meaning in my work is irreducible to a single thought or idea. It is as abstract as it is significant.
