Artist Statement

My life has been consumed by feeling I do not belong.  I am an athlete who doesn’t respond well to coaching, a student who only excels on my own time, and a loner surrounded by many acquaintances and few friends.  Human connection is a struggle for me, even though people who know me argue the counterpoint.  Drawing is the only through line to my life that has consistently enhanced my human connection, and that is why I create the art I create today.
