About the Artist:
My paintings focus on a mysterious, heavily-forested world and its inhabitant, connected through a framework of visual and thematic motifs: reverence for nature; the allure of mystery, darkness and obfuscation; the use of masks and various obscuring garb; cycles of life and death; structures in differing stages of ruin; dream symbolism; wandering spirits; the space between visible and invisible environments, and all things forgotten. The time and place depicted in my paintings is intentionally unclear, with a focus on environment that is equal to or greater than that of the figures within these environments.
I was born near Detroit in 1987. Outside of the most elementary art classes in public school, I am a self-taught artist. I have dabbled for as long as I can remember, and decided to truly begin practicing at the beginning of 2016.
