My work always begins with a love for the magic of creation- the blank surface about to be transformed into a living thing or another world. This act has been with mankind forever and yet never ceases to be awe-inspiring. I always want my marks to be visible, to keep this sense of wonder present. Using the medium of good old fashioned oil paint, I'm committed to narratives that explore themes of discovery, nature, energy, sociology, mythology, and the realms in-between.
