Statement
My artwork evolved from a purely physical form of painting, to working with digital art, animation, and recently post-digital painting. An art form conceptually shaped by the internet and digital processes, but insisting on bringing humanity and materiality to them. Thoughts and ideas flow from a time scale that includes my ancestors, current events, ideas found in nature, historical documents, world travel and scientific publications.
