I believe to be an artist is to be an efficient problem solver. To be a good artist means constant exploring and finding new problems to solve. I keep an eclectic body of work to represent that exploration. There is, however, one unifying thread in all my work and it is a sense of narrative. From single frame paintings to animations I am a storyteller. I believe in the power of the anecdote. It can teach us lessons, bring us comfort, or simply entertain. I believe the anecdote is the most accessible form of communication and while sophistication and thought are important, they are masturbation without an audience.
