My paintings are constructed with many layers of applied and sanded paint. Making use of words, maps, flags, and found internet photos, the imagery is relatively simple, graphically bold, and sometime political. In addition, my paintings are about paint and exploring the line between abstraction and representation. My best paintings force me to embark on an investigative journey rather than simply depict an idea. Ultimately, I like to be surprised by my work.
