My paintings and sculptures stem from my interests—ecological sciences, world-building, and the practice of permaculture. I use previous works as points of reference for future creations. Sculptures influence my paintings, and vice versa, as color combinations bounce between the two- and three-dimensional realms. I straddle abstraction and figuration, and shift between the micro and macro, fleshing out what may be difficult to perceive with the naked eye. Characters within the composition, once recognized, act as guides through a humorous and often autobiographical landscape.
