Artist STATEMENT

my work juxtaposes open, infinite space with closed, protected spaces, the small and the expansive, the real and surreal, as seen in nature amidst the nuances of atmospheric changes. The unifying factor is my minimalist vision, bringing the opposites together in one expression of one moment. in time.
