I get an unreasonable amount of pleasure from painting a clean line. Experimenting with the relationships between various colors might be the most valuable part of my practice. Though the adjectives geometric and psychedelic are often attached to my work I don't personally identify with either of those cultures or art movements. I enjoy classic fiction, and I'm most influenced by literature. Though the individual works are purely aesthetic, I incorporate a theme into every show - usually a half-baked investigation into something I've read such as Kierkegaard's concept of faith and how it relates to the artist. I also work collaboratively with a group of artists dubbed the Screwed Arts Collective. We used to make big shows, but as of late we are more of drinking buddies than collaborative partners.
