Statement

      When I was a sophomore in high school, I discovered I had a knack for drawing interweaving patterns and shapes with simple roller ball pens and mechanical pencils.   My complex illustrations and imagination continued to evolve throughout high school as they were fueled by my intense interest in the early nineties alternative music scene.  Within a couple of years of school, I found my creative side suffocated within the confines of a dead-end factory job earning just enough cash to keep me coming back day to day for nearly ten years.

     In 2008, with the downturn of the U.S. economy, I decided to take the opportunity to flee the diminishing factory, and make an attempt to find success as an artist.  I began teaching myself oil, and for the first time, began working on canvas.  Within just the past two years, I’ve made enormous leaps and bounds in the evolution of both my technique and subject matter.  Hopefully, I will continue to improve in my style and capture the attention of an art world that is harder than ever to thrive within.

     My paintings have a sort of surreal overtone to them which reflects the time in which we live.  In particular, my work has a tendency to focus on the interaction between modern technology and the natural world around us that has existed much longer than we have.  My current work focuses on the overall concept that there may come a day when technology is viewed almost as natural as nature itself.  I believe that if we are not very careful, we will lose our way and forget where it is that we have come from, if we haven’t done so already.  The intent of my work is to blend these ideas with various abstract elements and occasional op-art influences while challenging the viewer's imagination.
