"I'm not interested in slavish objective representation. I'm interested in evoking an inner world — my own inner world, and hopefully that of the viewer."
"My work is influenced by a variety of interests and diverse sources including but not limited to German/Austrian Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, antiquity, graphic novels, speculative fiction, Symbolism, Existentialism and history. In my work, I look to create imagery that conveys a sense of atmosphere, emotion, or metaphor. My goal is to speak to the subconscious of the viewer or simply leave an emotional impression, allowing room for the viewer to interpret their own personal meaning.
My work is a combination of new media and traditional media. I create most of my work by digital painting or drawing, which I often combine with other elements I’ve made using traditional mediums such as acrylic paint, watercolor, tempera, papier-mâché, ink, photography, etc. as well as with non-traditional components such as tape, torn paper and coffee stains. I combine these various elements together through digital means to compose a final image.”
