Much of my personal work is influenced by hyper-realism and surrealist art, juxtaposing different elements together to form an imaginative, immersive world fraught with social and philosophical themes such as technology's effect on nature and human experience. Each piece becomes a tangle of contradictions: cerebral yet visceral, organic yet synthetic, familiar yet strange, taut yet explosive. Rather than just tell a story, however, my goal is to create a sense of motion and suspense to make a powerful impact.


    I form new inspiration by creating as many new experiences as possible: checking out gallery and museum shows, exploring new music, observing manmade and natural structures and watching animated short films, which is where I think a lot of the energy and movement in my artwork comes from. I often form ideas intuitively, throwing myself into an experimental state to get my gears going until I've "discovered" the right idea. I'll sketch, take photos, put together a music video, make up a cocktail, fold some paper. But really, my best ideas often come when I'm just driving or doing the dishes.
