At the core of my practice is an on going exploration into what painting can be and how to approach it in today’s world. The process embraces the variety of painting’s history, sometimes beginning from an idea or drawing, sometimes a blank surface. Each piece is approached in the same playful manner, growing reflexively, interweaving intricate layers of visual references to both high and low culture.

I try to make oddly rousing paintings that open questions, encourage prolonged viewing and deliver rewards by revealing themselves little by little.

returning very soon!
