Artist Statement

I paint and print geometric shapes to create optical illusions and thought provoking contemporary art.

My left brain is in a constant dance with my right brain, the result of which are the straight lines, bright colours, and perfected details that my paintings contain.

With a background in graphic design and all my artwork starting in Photoshop, I am able to fully realize my vision from start to finish. My current artistic direction is mimicking the computer and how computers generate images.

In many ways my work is a reflection on how we view life. When we are close to a situation we can get lost in the small details, but when we step back, we see the whole picture and everything becomes clear.

Painting and printing are my stress relief and they allows purpose and worth. I invite everyone to share my art.
