Artist Statement

I enjoy blurring boundaries- (photography with text, kitsch with high-art philosophy) as much as I enjoy the dynamic of extremes- (playing them against one another, making them define one another). 

I paint how others write and write how others paint. I try to grasp the beauty I see, knowing this is futile, and operating somewhere in the void between.
