Artists' Statement

I make art that investigates the psychological space of creativity in search of the imagination. How does our sensory experience of the world work with our memories, expectations, ideas and emotions to create meaning? I am motivated by the study of human perception as both the filter through which we experience the world, and the mechanism that makes it meaningful.
