About the artist...

I am inspired by art that has a certain sense of mystery, and forever reach for that in my own work. I find that I have developed a reductionist approach by building up complicated layers, writing and inscribing, and then slowly reducing the extraneous to get to the final surface with intentionally awkward beauty. My paintings embrace a delicate balance between control and freeflow, allowing the story to unfold while editing the surface until only the most important essence remains. My love for the urban landscape and minimalist aesthetics of the desert are huge influences in my artistic style.
