“Using the grid method – the classical tool to determine proportions – and the female form as a timeless icon, I focus on dissolving the boundaries of the figure to explore the relationship between organic and rigid forms, context, and composition.
I believe in process, spontaneity, and action. My style and interests are varied, as are the mediums I use. The medium foresees the style. The interest suggests the medium. My work combines formal academic painting and drawing with a strong interest in graffiti, comics, graphics, and pattern. My “character-centric” works are drawn from folklore, specifically Americana.”
