My figurative work has a multitude of influences and layers of meaning. I use real things from nature, whether it be dried herbs, flowers or tree pieces to sculpt my paintings. Inspiration comes from my thoughts, feelings and experiences as I use my tattoo influence to bring my figurative work into the third dimension.
These flowers are much larger than life and have a presence that cannot be ignored! The center of these paintings are textured with dried flower petal, bringing the flowers through the full circle of life! The large size of these pieces has allowed me to explore a looser form of expression through my paintings.
Every time I touch clay, a figure emerges. These are my most recent works, as I am now sculpting flowers out of clay as well as including real natural materials and transforming them into sculptural paintings.
