"My work combines interests in psychology, painting, digital art, and photography. Digital layers of brush strokes, patterns, and flora are pushed, pulled, skewed, and reformed, before being painted and taking on a new analogue state."

My studio practice is an exploration of found images that are cut, pasted, digitally combined, and painted. In a world where photographic media is continuously consumed, my work blends realism into abstract forms to take on entirely new representations. Like fleeting memories, only fragments of what was once visually depicted, remain. Working in a variety of mediums, each painting tells a different story, often swayed by changing states of mind. My process is reflective, personal, often driven by observation, and yet highly influenced by transitory experiences.
