In my Tidbit Series, I utilize informal materials such as found cardboard and product packaging. With minimal elements of composition, process, surface, and color, I transform the banal original materials into a complex intersection of plane and form. Often, these pieces are used as maquettes for considerably larger works. This work is, in every way, a graphic distillation of my longstanding painting practice.

My working approach is very intuitive—there are usually no sketches and rarely a predetermined choice of color. The result is the physical consequence of a dialogue between myself and my materials.
