Full Artist's statement
I keep myself open to all possibilities of subject, medium, and style, as I never know what I will respond to next. Themes I’ve worked with in the past include the figure, especially portraits, and every aspect of nature; from microscopic cells to the expansion of the universe. Stunning patterns can be found everywhere, which I often incorporate into my paintings in varying levels of abstraction. As a whole, I think of the majority of my paintings as an exploration of the possibilities of “abstract representation,” as I inhabit the space between abstraction and pure representation and often meld the two.
