    “Surrealism, then, neither aims to subvert realism, as does the fantastic, nor does it try to transcend it. It looks for different means by which to explore reality itself.” - Michael Richardson

    I am a realist at heart, yet over time I found that it needed further exploration. I let the real
    world act as a catalyst for deeper and more playful thought. My work portrays this thinking.
    The environment is a work of art that opens infinite worlds of discovery.
    “My head is round so my thinking can change direction.” - Francis Picabia

    I enjoy pursuing various avenues of creative thought and although drawing mediums are by
    far my passion, I am not locked into that alone. I enjoy photography, sculpture and painting
    as well. The subjects that I explore are familiar with an emphasis on the mechanical, nature
    in all of its forms and the underwater realm. I will alter and extend them as to bring the
    viewer closer to the unexpected.
