ARTIST STATEMENT

Through painting I get rid of compulsive thoughts and ideas. The process can be very meditative and improvised but there are also moments where I can obsessively try to get something to look or feel a particular way.
Lately I’ve been interested in juxtaposing straight lines and gradients with organic shapes, and bright colors with earthy colors to give the painting a multidimensional sense.

WOOD PAINTINGS
I make these paintings using reclaimed pieces of wood. I pick and cut the ones I consider have the most interesting shapes and paint over some of the patterns already drawn in the wood to make them more obvious. It is a tribute to the natural beauty of an abused natural resource.

OBJECT REHAB
I started Object Rehab with the goal of designing a sustainable product line inspired by the reuse and transformation of existing discarded objects and products at their typical end of life. By 'upcycling' existing products and in many cases, changing their functions completely, I strive to give new meanings and a fresh perspective to our interactions with the functional items of our daily life.
