My paintings, drawings, and digital prints pay a certain attention
to Surrealism, but my work is not an expression of the subconscious.
Rather, it reveals my own hyper-consciousness.
I draw into texts and found images (primarily from nature),
allowing their original purpose and design to inform my process.
These images trigger memories; inorganic and anatomical elements
are incorporated into abstract landscapes, and forms are suggested
through the running and splattering of paint.
An increased self-awareness emerges as I struggle to find connections
between what I can and can't control, between the real and the
imaginary, the natural and artificial.
