Artist’s Statement

My art reflects my passion for photography and shows my perspective of the world as seen through a lens; or displayed as snapshots, alone or in arrays. But, as opposed to the precision and realism of photography, my glass art is abstract, and is almost always composed of rigid geometry that is restraining random, chaotic design elements - as my artistic and analytical personalities each vie for control.
