My artwork is a mixture of abstract expressionism found objects, and photography collage inspired by symbolism and my love for nature. My personal art style and my contracted custom art for clients is a very different process. I create art that is expressive through use of different media in a 3D way. I enjoy collecting objects like metal, glass, and sea shells because of the their forms, history and symbolism. The objects were once new and now they are transformed and used in a different way. I compare this idea to people and myself, ever changing, and aging. As I see it there is no separation between life and art. Art is life. What makes these objects important is the fact that I found them and granted them importance. The nature photography I take are also used to transformed into a new picture, a new purpose. I like to work in a large format.
The viewers experience is very important to me. I want to pull them in closer to look at the detail. I take into consideration elements like shadow, metallic paint reflections and lighting. I like creating interactive art and art that makes people want to touch the surface. I like my work to have elements hanging off the edges as if the picture were bursting out to become apart of the wall and environment.
