Good work usually arises when the creators... seem to have no ambitions towards gilt culture but are involved in a kind of squandering-beaverish endeavor that isn't anywhere or anything... It goes always forward eating its own boundaries, and, likely as not, leaves nothing in its path other than the signs of eager, industrious, unkempt activity. –Manny Farber.

 

    Eager and unkempt are two words that can be used to describe my work and process, as well as perhaps my life.  Both are innately woven together, inseparable as creatures and figures emerge the main subjects of drawings, paintings or installations. Often slightly autobiographical in nature and/or narrative, these characters are defined in mostly black and white with accents of color and laborious lines with painstaking detail.  The figures at times sink into the equally detailed and manic backgrounds, and other times stand alone, cut out like paper dolls.
