Artistic Statement

I am curious about the world and driven to investigate it on a daily basis. I live for collaboration and the sublime artistic experience that can only be created out of perseverance, rigour and passion. My objective is to continue to learn and grow through collaboration with other artists through a disciplined artistic practice that continually challenges me.
