Artist’s statement: Dietrich’s Mirror is a series of self-portraits taken in mirrors belonging to the late Marlene Dietrich. The first images in this series were taken in a mirror which shattered in transit from the auction house.

Artist’s statement: Image, color, composition, and texture are all informed by what I read, what I listen to, and that which surrounds me.

Artist’s Statement: Commissioned books of botanical art, meant to immortalize the gardens of collectors, usually illustrating miscellanies of species primarily enjoyed for their beauty and rarity, not the medicinal usefulness.
Artist’s Statement: I think of my pieces as snippets of thoughts and feelings we experience but often fail to recognize.

Artist’s statement: I’ve always felt they were God’s greatest creation, so my work evolves around women, their natural allure and the insecurities or confidence created by Pop culture.

Artist’s Statement: My recent collage work reflects my interest in fragmentation (fragments of memory) and displacement. I’m interested to deconstruct and interpret already existing images to create new meaning(s).
Artist’s Statement: Collage is just the best thing ever, because, guess what – it is so easy! Too lazy and impatient for actual drawing or painting, I got interested in collage as a perfect way to look for new meanings of things, tell stories and ‘paint’ dreamy landscapes. I create surreal realms I’d love to […]
Artist’s statement: “Everything is Collage.” You – Your Mom – This Statement Your Ideas – Your Entire Worldview – Society The Universe Itself. Just as quarks come together to form atoms – to form molecules – to form complex structures – to form life, your innermost thoughts – beliefs – ideas are formed from the […]
Artist’s statement: I am hitting my stride after a long process of learning how to paint my way, growing beyond the obvious influences and entering my own world.
