My work is driven by fascination and curiosity. I become captivated by something, usually from my lifelong interests of science fiction, nature, oddities, and storytelling. Skeletons and plants are endlessly explorable to me because of their different embodiments of beauty. They also represent the perpetuating cycle of life and death. Rather than humans, I usually prefer painting subjects that dodge the weight and preconceptions of race, gender, and other factors that can divide or group us. This allows the work to be interpreted more universally. Overall, the goal of my artwork is to haunt you, to give you the feeling of a stirring poem, song, or horror movie.
