Color theory and negative space plays an important part in my paintings. Most of my inspiration comes from memory or references. My thought process goes on for quite a while before I start a painting. I like to evoke nostalgic feelings in my work, most are done from happy memories or future desires.
I am currently working on a series of paintings that will connect with a theme about artists. The art of shattering has always fascinated me and will be incorporated into the work. It will turn turn slowly to an abstract spontaneous version as it finishes.
