ARt practice Statement
"Art, like most things, starts with observation. Perfecting the art of watching. Watching comes with the idea that you are searching; that something needs to be found. With the essential media of the crafts along with science, literature, and history, I search for that place that exists after all the work is done and all the distractions silenced to find what remains to each of us."
