Artist Statement

Collide is about a moment in time; a second, a minute, where two paths cross.  It is at this moment that lives change course.  The people in this “collision” are never the same, the course of their lives are changed forever.  We are shaped by these moments throughout our lives whether they are dramatic events such as the death of a love one or the conception of a child, or a mundane meeting of someone who later becomes a pivotal part of our journey.  Whatever the magnitude of the event it changes us, on some level as we careen through this life, as we collide.
