In every facet of my life as an artist, I see the world as both logical and mysterious. My figurative work speaks to this dichotomy by depicting ordinary human perceptions through extraordinary characters. I employ bold color and patterns in my paintings which serve as a foundation for the solitary, absurd and determined characters I invent. I am attracted to the hard-edged, precise techniques found in pop art, graphic design and comic art which I utilize to produce direct, smoothly painted canvasses. The results are beguilingly simple, an easy gateway for the more complex psychological themes that exist beneath the surfaces of my work.
