My work is inspired by life shaping experiences that I have encountered. I am influenced by memories and my unique way of thought. These factors contribute to me finding compositions that help produce a 2D visual narrative. Investigating my own self-criticism allows me to communicate personal content on paper.

This reflection reveals my vulnerable psyche and how I perceive my interaction with others. As an artist my process is dictated by textures of simultaneous growth and decay; while my imagination constructs the spontaneous rendering of the image itself. In my most recent body of work I have used lithography to help convey my own irrational methodology.

In regard to technique I work intuitively trying to recapture the thought. The mark making creates tension that provides conflict on paper. I would also like to pursue some sculptural elements as well that explore similar themes in the near future.
