MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2013
Artist StatementI am fascinated with the sea, the macabre, the divine and the metaphysical. I create narratives through tiny dioramas constructed from paper cut-outs, pen & ink drawings and paintings inside of recycled containers. I explore the idea there are two worlds – the one we live in and the one that lives within ourselves. I put my ideas inside of other objects.
I am a self taught artist. I studied music and art history for my undergraduate degree, and eventually came to be a Web designer/developer. I've participated in regional exhibits and won several awards and honorariums. I'm deeply interesting in using the Internet AS a medium for creative expression, and publish my photos, drawings and other works there.
