Artist Statement
In a culture largely structured to value profit over people, what ways do we personally contribute to the continuation of this model? These paintings are an examination of how we dumb ourselves down with the overuse of technology and consumer mindsets, and therefore can fall prey to the profit motive as top priority in our society.

    Very striking and intriguing work. I prefer looking at art without commentary from the artists or art critics, to allow the art alone to elicit an unfettered response from me. What I see here does not impress me to be about the profit motive, but more a suggestion of the dehumanizing effects of technology. I love the men afloat in the forest. Enjoyed this much.
