Meet the Artist
Generally drawn to a minimalist aesthetic, my artworks intend to convey a thought, object, situational experience or emotion in the simplest and most direct way possible. I also want to give viewers boldness and color and depth, but only enough information to inspire a sense of wonder or relatable introspection, and to open a door for the viewer to fall down their own little contemplative rabbit hole. I am inspired by nature and the critters in it, space and the great unknown, concepts of escapism and wanderlust, imaginative ‘what-if’ scenarios, and slices of everyday life. My professional life is one of goals and strategy and linear paths; however, I tend to approach my art with no expectations and no limits – anything’s possible. While some of my works present easily discernible figures or objects in readily recognizable settings or scenarios, others aim to explore more complex, oft-random, and even puzzling visual pairings. I believe that the artist is only half the equation in the making of a work of art. The viewer, through their consumption and contemplation, is the other half. They (you reading this) complete the story.
