Full Artist's statement
I aim to make artwork that can be both beautiful yet disturbing; pleasing to the eye and yet questionable to the mind. In my mind, all my works are very driven by my aesthetic and idea of beauty but they also have something unsettling to them. Frequently, I oil paint and try out different traditional mediums. Later, I utilize what I like about these mediums to feed how I paint digitally, feed my digital mark-making. To me, there is just something very pleasing about looking at digital art and the range of colors that can only be achieved through the use of a computer.
