I use bright and saturated colors in my artwork, with an attention to warm and cool color relationships on a large scale. My work is often image-based, but abstract within the lines. I often utilize hatch-like mark-making techniques and color harmonies to create this sense of positive and inspiring vibration throughout my artwork. My paintings are created like a dance or music and typically speak to the current events that are happening around us. I’m often inspired by artists like Kandinsky, Escher, Van Gogh, Picasso, Basquiat, and Kiptoe, to name a few.

I find that my best work comes when my body is moving with the paint. Getting outside my comfort zone, trying new things, and being in the world of the unknown is a big part of my practice.

My paintings often transcend a larger world than just the paintings themselves. This is done by creating paintings on the bustling streets or on public walls, as well as producing movies of the process of my paintings from start to finish. I am always inspired by street art, guerrilla marketing, and the typical person walking to work. My work often speaks to current events and popular culture coupled with my own vibration and style.

I love to problem solve and critically think about what being an artist means to me. My soul, heart, and connection to the viewer are what consistently drive my practice and visual language.
