Painting a blank canvas or wandering around city streets with a camera in hand gives me the most important ingredients when I’m creating art: spontaneity and freedom.

My palette — whether using paint, a camera, or a computer is strongly influenced by the unlimited sights, sounds, and colors of the city. From my paintings of cityscapes and people to my architectural photographs, screen prints, and abstract digital images — I work to capture the textures and sensations of the city.

I value the process of creating art and like to experiment with new techniques. I draw inspiration and ideas from the city, music, other artists, street art/graffiti, observing people, technology, and the media.
