I create art because I love to see a painting transform over time from fl at areas of colour to finished, form filled, 3d images on a 2d surface. In the series “Reflections”, I explore the interplay between reality and reflection. This interplay usually goes unnoticed by the casual viewer in real life. I purposefully present these images though, in a manner of ambiguity. Are the images reflected behind the viewer or in front? What is actually going on in the painting? To this point, I take the painting one step further by introducing visuals that set up a concept. This conceptual approach allows the visuals to play off each other to tell a story. This story presents issues that in turn conjure up emotions. I believe my art can visually please as well as move the viewer.
