My paintings are based on themes of color, surface, and space. They are tactile, visceral paintings. You can almost smell the paint and you will want to touch them to feel the buttery surface. The subject matter is a twist on the urban landscape - a minimal approach to architecture using subtle combinations of color and form to create spatial ambiguities and unpredictable shifts of foreground and background.

The paintings are built up in layers with a mixture of oil paint and cold wax medium. The wax provides a matte finish that retains a translucency allowing light to pass through the multiple layers. The mixture is applied with a palette knife and is often scratched back into to reveal variations in color from below. These subtle transitions in color and texture serve to transport the structural elements from the mundane and physical to a symbolic or psychological realm. Themes such as home, solitude and reflection are recurring elements.
