I am an admirer of the mundane. It plays a pivotal role in my art because I feel we are missing the majesty of the world around us. Much of my art focuses on someone gazing at a distance, or something in their hand. I'm a big believer in stopping to smell the roses, checking out the scenery, and pausing so that life doesn't pass you by. I like to juxtapose concepts that don't always go together and create fantasy that requires a second glance, for it could be mistaken to be reality.
