I create cartoony, surrealist-inspired figurative paintings and illustrations to explore psychological, spiritual, and philosophical concepts through metaphors and allegories. For the most part, I illustrate ideas that pop into my head from a wide range of interests. I try to end up with a finished product that is an interesting piece of work in itself, as an object… and include imperfections to remind us of our humanity. Any robot can create the perfect work of art, it’s us humans that can still create “happy accidents.”

I’m endlessly amazed by the process of inspiration, processing it into something meaningful, and articulating it into a tangible thing. The cycle comes full circle when the tangible thing is viewed by the audience.

I want to use art supplies to experiment with symbols and keep doing my thing. My art practice is a combination of meditation in action, cosmology, and a self-imposed civic duty to put my talents to some kind of use. When I get to a point of self-employment, I plan to create materials to help others to do the same and initiate art projects that include and promote groups and communities of artists instead of just me. I've received inspiration from so many other artists and other sources and I hope to do the same for others in the future.
