"I cherish the forsaken. With my work, I address themes of isolation, stigma and dehumanization. I strive to be articulate and succinct; to present the often overlooked moments that either amaze me or break my heart. Often, the work is intimate, playful and unashamed. Always, it is carefully crafted and thoughtfully executed in the traditions of those who have come before me.

In life and in practice, my desire is to ignite a deeper examination of one's emotional perception of the world and our place in it and call into question the reality of a moment lost."
