About The Artist
My paintings are created through the use of ink, drawing, oil painting, cyanotype and monotype techniques. The themes that inspire my work are beauty, nature, and impermanence, as I seek to capture the fleeting and ever-changing moments of life.
Bright colors, psychedelic patterns and the human figure have always been a draw for me, as they represent the essence of life and energy. My motivation stems from chance and experimentation, as each piece of art evolves from call-and-response conversations between myself and the medium.
