Artist Statement


"Art and science share a paramouric existence in my work. Cold analysis and meticulous reason are transformed into something mysterious and beautiful when reimagined by artistic intent. It is my goal to express the intricacy and grotesque magnificence of the natural world, including human and animal bodies in life and rot, so that they can be seen as both art and biology. This desire, along with interest in lore and legend, a strong sense of identities, and knowledge of the history of humbug, death and medicine, fuel my pursuit of visual story telling."
