Artist Statement
A major conceptual and thematic aspect of my work has always been the search for religious identity. My work examines the role of the spiritual in a contemporary framework that deifies technology and looks to technology as savior.

My newest works use the latest archival and UV resistant pigments in the printing process. The files are composite, collaged images created using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Fractal Design Painter. The works begin as imagery photographed in a studio using a digital camera. They are then manipulated digitally and printed directly onto HP Studio Canvas.
