Artist Statement

My work is the product of the captivation I have towards the medium and the passion I have for the process. I am drawn to the paint itself and how different techniques can create such dynamic and breathtaking outcomes. My goal is for the viewer to dive into a piece and notice how the paint moves, drips, and swirls and I aspire for the method to become more exciting than the subject it is representing.

Each painting evolves and advances into the next. I strive to build upon new discoveries as well as recreate longstanding techniques that have become standard to my style, such as strong use of line, quick brushstrokes, and allowing the paint to be itself through embracing fortunate accidents. Thus, every piece becomes unified in the old methods that work fused with the new encounters that fuel my enchantment with the paint and the experience it holds.
