I have a broad range of interests in visual art, and am attracted to a variety of styles in a range of media but find myself most drawn to imagery that is dark and strange. Monochromatic or polychromatic work can both be beautiful and capture my interest as long as it is dramatic. For this reason I am interested in the balance of light and dark and the effects of light on objects. I want the viewer to believe that I have spent time in the figurative space shown in the piece creating an image that is thought-out, believable and executed with craftsmanship. Meditations about humanity and my interest in dark and strange dramatic works are what inform my work.
