The current direction of my work is graphic illusions and stylized realism. Artistic details, textures and depth are very important to me, but I do realize the mind of the viewer automatically inserts details as well. It is fascinating and I like to play with that back-and-forth language.
The use of the airbrush enables me to pain on a multitude of surfaces. Painting and customizing will forever be a fixation of mine. I love to weave the stories of our lives into belongings and surroundings. Within all my work a story is created as well as the story being told on paper along with the certificate of authenticity.
