Art with a sense of adventure

Torn between grit and glitter (sometimes literally), my urban-inspired paintings combine color with texture to create complex layers that spark the imagination. I use a passion for exploring city streets and abandoned buildings for inspiration, so I often emulate distinctive traits like rust and peeling paint. Balanced by pops of sublime color, these contrasting details work together to find common ground and tell our unique stories of impermanence and deterioration, perseverance and renewal. It all works best when I create intuitively, so the process of layering acrylic paint and distressed paper and other found materials add qualities that feel unfiltered and authentic.
