Inspired by vintage Americana, I bring these antiquated machines and our sentiments forward in contemporary statements… Fascinated by machinery as well as nature, my artwork creates beauty from familiar, mundane matter. Beauty that is rooted in truth. Simple by design.
I am attentive to negative space, prefer asymmetry, love geometry and organic shapes, crave color.
With an adventurous spirit, I explore different techniques… My favorite personal statement: “You never know, unless you try.”
Artists such as Ed Ruscha, Roy Litchenstein, Andy Warhol, and Jeff Brouws influence my work. John Baldassari was the only one whoever told me there was too much ink on the page!
