Artist Statement

"Prairie landscapes, flowing rivers and night skies all provide spaces of quiet mystery for me and it is here that I search for clues of the elusive. Through drawing I attempt to make visible a belief that there exists something beyond what can be seen. My work provides for me a vehicle to research and envision the non-physical. I attempt to envision that which I hope to understand, that which language cannot explain and what science and mathematics seek to discover, a knowing that exists beyond one’s limits."
