I am fascinated with people, relationships, and mass psychology. In particular, I am interested in how the mind works and how our feelings, thoughts, ideas, and perceptions create our world, both personally and collectively. I find inspiration for my work by looking both outward and inward. From these explorations I have developed a cast of characters who are at times scary and peculiar and at other times funny and vulnerable. I usually render them with a repetition of pattern that gives them a feeling of form and solidity while maintaining their dynamism. The characters can appear alone, interacting as a small group, or as a massive army.
