My artwork is a reflection of who I am and the things that are important to me. (Admittedly, that’s most art for you.)
I am the kind of curious that gets me in trouble – the obsessive-hyper-focused kind of curious that ruins carpets, sets things on fire, and forgets to eat or sleep at times. I’m easily fascinated, and I’d rather influence something than try to control it because there’s more to learn that way.
My work plays frequently with transparency and light. It doesn’t translate well into photographs or poorly lit spaces. (Not gonna lie, this causes some issues, but the actual work is worth it.) I enjoy hearing what people genuinely see in the work, but the question I’m after is “what does it make you feel?” – and why.
I make my own paint. ALL of it. I cut my own panels, and build my own frames. Most of my pieces are finished with a coat of furniture-grade epoxy resin. Sometimes I’ll use that resin in the painting itself; it depends on if it needs it.
My art practice, my process, doesn’t put much stock in rules, except as stories explaining what worked for others. Rules, like stories, are excellent to learn from, but should not hold you back from creating the art that you need to make.
If you have any questions about my work or process, feel free to email through the contact form or reach out on social media. I love a good chat about my work, but fair warning, I don’t appreciate or take kindly to snark about it. (Then again, I don’t know a single creative person that does.)
