artist statement

When I was four, my dad took me for a walk in the woods. The sights, sounds and smells of the forest awakened my curiosity and prompted me to seek out wild places ever since. I find the clearest glimpses of reality in such spaces when I connect the here-and-now with timeless truths. I have spent much of my life yearning for distant horizons, but I have learned to see this reality as near as my doorstep. I know that I simply need to open my eyes. This work is a record of these experiences where life, nature, memory, time, and place converge.
