Artist Statement


   While using the circus as a metaphor for life, I contemplate the way that humans attempt to stop and preserve moments in visual images, and written words. These brief glimpses, develop a story of their own and live on in time.

This collection, is a made up of my most recent works. 

Some of the pieces are inspired by legends of my ancestors, that have been preserved in the operas of Richard Wagner. 

The pieces are layered with many different materials, and paints, forming textured collages. If one looks closely they might also find a few words tucked within the compositions.
