My dreamlike and surreal work is a fusion of personal experience and influence created though a partially intuitive process which mines my own subconscious and human collective memory. Amorphous passages in my images combine to provide an open field for viewer cloudreading; My automatic, intuitive, and often anamorphic drawing gently focuses meaning in my pieces yet simultaneously presents worlds which are surreal and mysterious. The resulting work is rich with timeless visual elements, moody atmospheres, and the romantic narrative subtext of a 19th century Symbolist expressed uniquely in the diverse international context of contemporary art.
