By intertwining contemporary concepts with classical figurative realism,
I use common construction materials to animate ideas around human consciousness; persona and vulnerability.
Gestures and articulations of the human form; this intricate dance of outward behavior and internal narrative is a source of constant inspiration for me.
I work in themes; most recently thoughts around how we are formed, informed or deformed by our belief constructs lead me.
“Sometimes your belief system is really your fears attached to rules.”
