Plain efficiency and complete frivolity motivate me when I paint. I work with aluminum for its smooth surface, neutral grey color, lightweight, and shine. It also allows me to cut my paintings to any shape the subject may dictate. I choose to look at Rococo imagery for the romantic, tragic figures in beautiful clothes, but I interpret specific 18th century painters because they provide a perfect and readily available template of this fairytale I’ve imagined since I was a child.

More recently I’ve taken cues from modern architecture and interior design, situating my characters in contemporary spaces I desire to see.
