Artist Statement

I paint and print geometric shapes to create optical illusions and thought-provoking contemporary art.

My left brain is in a constant dance with my right, the result of which are the straight lines, bright colours, and perfected details contained within my paintings.

With a background in graphic design, the genesis of all of my artwork begins on the computer. Once my vision takes shape, I typically spend several weeks bringing my ideas to life through painting and silk screen printing. My current artistic direction is to mimick and play with the way that computers themselves generate images.

My work is, in part, a reflection on how easily we are lost in the smallest details. Stepping back often brings clarity and a deeper understanding of our experiences.

I find that I cannot stop creating art. It is an impulse that needs expression, the fulfillment of which gives me great satisfaction. I invite everyone to share in my art.
