I enjoy the entire act of creating, taking an idea from concept to completion and the procedure involved in the making. The process in my artwork includes photography, sketching, computer rendering to recreate a composition, and the final application of paint on board where I let the painting guide me in it’s final direction.
I have two series of work, both relating to symbols of communication and how time affects them. My eye is always drawn to the structures of old deteriorating billboards. I aim to achieve balance between the graphic structure of legs, the flat plane that they hold up–an organic painting-within-a-painting [where we instinctively look for a message], and the surrounding companion that is nature.
In my second series of work, I focus on the act of handwriting, and the documentation of language, ideas and feelings. These symbols are given permanence when written by hand, while our memories change shape over time.
