My strong intuitive approach has me favor painting abstraction with partial figurativism. Using popular symbols, camouflaged imagery, and skewed dimensionality I form sociopolitical evocations about personal freedom, gender identity, and the relationship between religion and nature. It is my hope that this work will gracefully enlighten others to steer clear of the fears that stop us.
As for materials, right now I like the texture, rigidity and permanence of a wood surface. Stains go on transparently so I can paint overlapping layers that produce multiple effects and narratives.
