I spend my life exploring and analyzing the form and line that we experience constantly as we percieve the world. My photographs attempt to capture the natural order I see in the world in the hopes that the viewer will be capable of doing the same. My illustrations tend to convey the imperfections and oddities of the human race. It is the juxtaposition of the human character and the environment he is situated in that I find most interesting. Through the exploration of the human form using sculpture as a medium, I am able to create a more tangible conception of what makes us intriguing. Focusing in plaster and clay, I often attempt to alter the viewer’s understanding of how he or she interacts with and perceives the environment.
I work in a variety of mediums including paint, ink, charcoal, plaster, clay, found objects, digital photography, digital pen, adobe illustrator, and adobe photoshop.
