visually i am fascinated by the unexpected,
by extremes, by textures, both man- and
mother nature-made, and by the tension
between order and chaos.
 for this reason much of my work employs
rough and/or asymmetrical elements.
after all, life is rough, life is asymmetrical.
as unpredictable and rough as life is,
                              so too should art be.
                                      at least my art ...

        artist statement                                           
Counter
             a friend of mine once said, “symmetry is the sign of a weak mind.”
                                             whether this statement is accurate or not,
                      i attempt to explore the asymmetrical side of life in my work.
              if striking color combinations result, if beauty emerges, it's not my fault.
(please note: now and again i have been known to lapse into symmetry,
if for no other reason than to test the waters.)
