Realist & Abstract.
Chaotic & Controlled.

I find great inspiration in the human form believing each gesture and pose tells a beautiful story. But humans are more than just their form. We are deeply complex, a lot of what we go through is intangible and I wanted to find how I could begin showing this on canvas. I started applying abstract techniques and began to weave the two practices together to find new ways of depicting the human experience. Abstract art is a great form of expression that helps depict, well, the abstract. When beginning a painting I start loose, creating chaotic strokes, splatters, and bleeds on the canvas. I then become more constructed as I form my subjects into their surroundings, developing and often combining them within the chaotic abstract scape.
