Using layered compositions of shape, pattern, color and line, I create an immersive environment for the viewer to explore my inner world and their own. These artworks depict new dimensions, cosmic realms and alternative realities connecting to the physical landscape around us and the mental landscapes within.
My approach to visual art intersects with my background as a musician. Pieces of a theme travel through my painting and the overall composition is multifaceted and musical. I combine methodical pre-planning with intuitive freedom, and my paintings flip from side to side, up and down, as I build the work layer by layer.
I am drawn to symbols of mystery and power structures. The majority of my work depicts landscapes of the night, referencing the urban landscape around me or the internal landscape of the mind. In the quiet chaos of night, we contemplate the mysteries of existence and I have learned to appreciate the darkness for the power it holds. Through my artwork, I share my visions and influences, but these pieces are also environments that viewers can enter and make their own discoveries.
