I tend towards abstraction in my work. My process is improvisational, with the intent to explore color relationships and spatial oddities.

Distorting human-like figures and facial structures allows me to explore the meanings implied by the movement of the body. The ambiguity of my work is intentional. I'm intrigued by the way the mind imbues form with meaning. 

My work spans a variety of media from painting to photography to sculpture and I have shown work in venues ranging from DIY pop ups run by No King’s Collective to Studio Gallery and the Howard Theater.
