Materials drive me, but also lack of materials, and technical constraints. I often relocate and must recreate my studio; the new space becomes my new artistic drive. Reading is yet another drive; interdisciplinary projects appeal to me.
I paint reality but my painting style is not Realism. I like to anchor the painting in a somewhat figurative object, and work around it. I strive to create art that makes people look again, and question norms and conventions.
