I am a realist attuned to the strange beauty of intuition. My paintings come to me in quiet moment as an assemblage of fragmented memories, symbolic archetypes, wild creatures and common objects, equally representational and ethereal.
I develop each idea using real props in a traditional still life studio set up. I study every detail to bring a life like quality to each object. I concentrate my efforts solely on the architecture of symbols, distilling their essence to remove and isolate them from the normal context. This process creates a true representation of the intangible qualities that existed within the initial vision.
Each painting’s realty then refers not just to the existential objects presented but alternates between the imaginary and symbolic and embraces both the visible and the invisible worlds of perception and realism.
