The eye is so subjective. What one individual captures, or chooses to see, another may not. It’s about inherent beauty, but also the potential, whether that’s a doorway, a window, a looking glass, spheres or vessels, water and reflection, there are glimmers of unseen, and the unknown.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: My work focuses on deteriorating architecture. These structures, designed to be huge forces of permanence, are continually being challenged, destroyed and forgotten. Among all of the clutter—the shards of wood, layers of rubble, chipping coats of paint—there remains a gentle resolve.These buildings and homes, often on the brink of ruin, possess an energized present–and presence–as they attempt to escape their fragmented reality.
