About my work:
ARTIST STATEMENT

My latest work is aesthetically and conceptually new for the art world. I select sterile images from mass media and transform them into unique fine art. Each painting starts with several advertisements. I do multiple blind contour drawings of the figures in the ads. The results are unpredictable and carefree in nature. Complex, commercial images are transformed into lyrical lines weaving across the page. I choose the best of the blind contours and paint them on canvases. I then select several specific features of my figures to paint realistically. This provides a sharp contrast of both painting style and dimensionality within each piece. I fill the negative space with ornate patterns and vivid colors, creating an entirely new aesthetic. My work makes a bold statement from afar, yet is a maze of detail up close. My dreamlike images transport the viewer away from commercialism to a simpler world of whim and magic.
