I make art about things that excite and puzzle me; mostly the structures that we create and the constant struggle to occupy these synthetic places in a natural manner. The relationships between the intricate parts that make up a whole are infinitely wondrous to me.

My work deals with the possibilities of imagination. Viewing art in general requires the viewer's imagination to complete the picture. I think of my work in terms of playful puzzles that place emphasis on that very notion. The subject matter derives from my love of toy-like parts found in various forms of engineering diagrams and architecture.
