"While I am drawn to large, emotionally charged representational oil paintings in the expressionistic tradition, my artistic journey recently took a turn towards the digital, such that I am now using stylus and screen to create limited edition prints. I am drawn to spaces that represent urban culture, and spaces where ‘life’ is either present or implied. But more than the subject matter, I am drawn to the process of creating art itself, to the random, uncontrolled events, the relationship between artist and medium, and the way it can capture something emotional, something real, whether it is with paint and pigment or the digital screen."
