Artist Statement

I strive to produce works of art that draw the viewer into a version of existence that blends our emotional and physical landscape into a form of being yet unrealized.

Artist Bio

 I have produced artwork almost my entire life and I find it to be both spiritually and intellectually engaging

and fullling. I have always enjoyed revealing unknowable worlds and views of a life accessible only through

one's imagination. My work has been inuenced by surrealism, ancient history, mathematics, and physics. I

have worked with many media, but I am drawn to pen and ink, oil, and airbrush on canvas or paper.

In many ways my artistic interest in exploring the unseeable universe led me to the study of physics. I

followed my passion for science and physics by pursuing a Bachelor of Arts and then a Ph.D. degree in physics.

During this time I continued to explore artistic techniques, such as photography, videography, graphic design,

and plein air. While my professional career has been in the sciences I have always continued to produce art to

share with others.
