My work is made up of highly speculated imperfections. I often paint imaginary still life, sometimes influenced by subjects on the Internet that I then subconsciously incorporate into expressive cartoon-like imagery. These subjects are a way for me to explore my creative process. I often construct and deconstruct the surface to pull the potential out of the picture. Until the picture feels right, I glaze the painting in a glass-like epoxy to seal the marks and gestures in like glorified fossils before it is framed.
