I consider myself a traditionalist compelled by whimsy. My daily experiences replay themselve. Recombining to manifest these journal entries.

My work consists of deconstructive, bold use of paint coupled with illusory use of light. I still want to the viewer to see the puppet strings.  I think that is where the  emotion of my work comes from.

I love that Painting is such an age old medium. That timelessness makes me feel connected somehow, with a greater sense of presence.
