Artist Statement

I am always looking to maintain that dynamic balance of overpowering force and serene calm that one feels in the presence of the ocean. For me, the key to capturing that moment in the art, is to find a calming, rhythmic movement in the surface of the water and translate that with impasto use of beeswax.  My goal is to find the movement and energies hidden in the water and bring them to the surface. Finally, the thick UV resin resonates with water to enhance its glass-like qualities.   

BIO:
