There is a personal serenity that comes through monotony or repetition in my work; this obsessive style is what I use to let my mind wander freeing my hand to work naturally. This mindlessness allows me to create images that are simultaneously outside of myself and a self-narrative. I draw influence from art noveau, pop, and surrealism. The themes I explore in my work are mortality and a fascination with the arcane, the power dynamics inherent in relationships, and a glorifying of the mundane through idolatry. These influences coalesce and are examined through the lens of pop surrealism and though my style of fingerprinting.
