As source and inspiration for my work, I seek images that conjure up ambiguity and distortion. This dissonance often provides the impetus for the work. I work primarily from sketches and photographs, often using a computer to mutate the image in order to test the various possibilities. As the work progresses, I try to move away from the 'naturalistic' depiction to a pictorial idea that emphasizes expressiveness and innovative (hopefully!) complex interaction of pictorial elements. My working process is largely governed by trial and error until I arrive at a satisfactory result.
