"Experimental, intuitive, and emotional. I am influenced and inspired by everything around me. In particular, nature, color, textures and the physical pain that I endure on a day-to-day basis all play a significant role in my work. I work with several different types of media, and love to experiment with “avant-garde” methods of layering and laying down different types of paint and textures. I love pushing the limits to see what new things I can do with it.

In the end, I strive for a balance throughout the piece, if I’ve managed to create that, then I feel like I’ve had success."
