Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

Artist Statement:

I make art that stems from a deep compulsion. It is a need to create a sense, a flavor, or a vibe about myself and the world around me. I don’t intend to solve life's mysteries or answer life's questions, as that would bore me. For me, it is more about the journey and the unknown. I see life as an adventure, but more importantly as a misadventure. Because where there is conflict there is interest. To put it bluntly, I make art because I’m fascinated with struggle, and the inherently entropic nature of living.

Ultimately, my art is a personal narrative, laced with symbolism, metaphor, absurdity, and humor. It is usually abstract, with representational elements mixed in. My process before I start a painting involves a great deal of writing, stream of consciousness doodling, taking photographs, listening to music, reading, watching television, and basically just taking in a great deal of information. Eventually, what I feel to be key observations come to light about myself or the world and society we all live in. It is my goal to capture the essence of said observations. Another important aspect of my work is contradiction. Contradiction is a great tool to provoke the viewer into thinking more about what is they’re seeing. This usually takes the form of bright, high chroma colors that seem to clash with the subject matter. This will hopefully disrupt the viewer's initial response to the work. Contradiction can sometimes lead to something profound. Not a profound answer to one of life's big questions, but a profound sense of self or aspect of living that is, in many instances, universally relatable as a human being.


I was somewhere around Denton, near the countryside...when the art began to take hold...
