ARTIST STATEMENT

Born and raised in the American West, I am compelled to portray my contemporary visual experience of this storied region. Place is an invariable facet to my imagery. Place evokes emotion and is documentarian in character. With a focus on the esoteric nature of locale, my works contemplate American iconography, our disappearing surroundings, coincidence, happenstance and the road. My pieces combine multiple printmaking techniques with bright process colors that incorporate landscape and the mysticism in the mundane. Most often, my imagery illustrates the opposition of human constructs against the open vastness of the shrinking American Western landscape. I believe everywhere we travel becomes part of our internal home. With my work, I put forth this shared commonality to the viewer.
