About the Artist

I find myself in multiple dimensions, curiously looking to the middle of a contrast, any contrast, and looking for an escape of my current reality. Sometimes that all comes out in organic, expressive imagery, and other times it is through hard-edge, colorful perspective works. I attended Southwestern University in Georgetown Texas with a degree in Economics and a minor in Studio Art. Now selling internationally and representation in Chelsea New York, I live in Austin with my pets. With a consistent success rate in showing my work and 14 years of creating works of art, my new focus is growing my presence in the gallery world.

Artist Statement

Existence as an extreme empath and overly self-aware person, I draw upon art to find my way in this reality. The constant battle in making my art shows a tension between imposing my conscious ideas and unintentional marks. I am able to further explore the philosophy of contrast, existence of dichotomies, and when the subconscious becomes conscious through learned traits of the mediums and freedom of mistakes Playing with techniques like form, negative space, composition, and texture, in combination of the natural state the medium, I allow the process to become the most important part second to what I want the viewer to get out of the piece.
