“life is short, art is long”

Seneca said that quote in his essay “on the shortness of life”

What we have of our ancestors and what we’ve learned about ancient cultures all point to art –  expression of war, paintings documenting leaders, pottery, poetry. there is a longevity to these things. All that was left in the ashes of the people of Pompeii was their crafted jewelry that they were wearing. Art will transcend time, culture, teach, instruct, and inspire. Art is long.

Artistic Statement  of 2011

“I strive to visually communicate concepts, feeling, and emotion through unique & thoughtful pieces. Every detail matters, every material, every texture, what form or medium it takes – everything comes into the fold of the piece and its outcome.The concepts that I deal with mainly surround the duality of man as a creator & destroyer, as well as nature and organic chaos vs science and structure. Concepts surrounding man-made technology are also a big part of my pieces.”
