Artist Statement

I have an affinity for nostalgia, myth, and nature conveyed in a contemporary way. Memories and shared experiences that are rooted in feelings and the subconscious informs much of my work. I believe this is why my art has been described as mysterious yet familiar.
Layers and texture are the cornerstone of my work. The look of the artist’s hand is apparent with the use of self-made stamps, stencils, and collage elements. Papers are created using mono printing and other techniques which are integrated into the paintings. This adds interest with nuanced line and pattern that is apparent even in the finer details.
Being an intuitive creator, I find the work can take on a life of its own as I respond to each element used along the way. That is what excites me most as an artist.
