My objective in artmaking is to see the subject so clearly and to present it in such a fundamental way that its true essence is revealed.
The convergence of hand crafted traditional methods, formal compositional concerns and contemporary conceptualization, transforms common subjects into a stage of design appreciation and symbolic suggestion.
Clarity of each object pays homage to man's creative ability. Visionary precision and centralized composition set my stage to honor man's solution-oriented design, his work ethic, his past, and his legacy in spirit.
