I'm a surrealist artist based in Seattle, WA interested in the ways people make meaning out of a chaotic world. My art attempts to replicate that process. I was trained in a classical tradition—focusing on the human figure with a delicate consideration of light and form. I twist these rules to produce a compelling spiritual and dream-like image. The work oscillates between a somber engagement with meaninglessness and psychedelic ecstasy--a reflection of a secular culture.
