Statement: Born and raised in Columbus Ohio, I've been doing art for several years now, seriously since 2015. A self-taught artist, primarily a figurative painter, I started off drawing first then I transitioned to painting. I found the body, in particular the head, to be of most interest. I was impressed by how one could create it in another way beyond normal human anatomy and structure. As of now, my work consist of mostly stand-alone figures in which I introduce new ways of construction and representation. My only focus as an artist is to discover and create new images. In order to do so I have to make something out of touch with reality but remains partially within the laws of appearance.
