I have always been interested in art. For my seventh birthday, I asked my parents for a bike and to visit the Tate in London. In the study of both art and mechanical drawing, I discovered the power of dynamic spatial relationships. It should come as no surprise that conceptually I explore and integrate both of these disciplines. My work focuses on the representational, with the construct telling the story while component parts challenge the viewer with clues or symbols. I am drawn to many subjects, but my favorites for reinterpretation involve bold elements that I find intrinsically charismatic. I find the timeless, compelling subject matter conjoined with the fluid medium of watercolor riveting.
