Inspiration comes in all forms, but I’m particularly drawn to the form and color of flowers. A play on chiaroscuro – the Italian term for the high-contrast and play of light and darkness I explore flowers in all their isolated glory.


A visual art project. Neighbors is the first in a series of works I have been developing that examine genocide. While the conflict in Kosovo provided the initial inspiration for the piece, the characters represent archetypes in any genocidal conflict – aggressor and victim, soldier and citizen, majority and minority. By removing all sense of time and place the piece presents the face of genocide as universal and timeless.
