What inspires you as an artist?

I'm inspired by everyday people going through everyday life, and also by the female form.  In my current work, many of the figures I draw are women. You’ll also notice all my figures lack things like clothes, hair, skin tone and sometimes even faces. I love taking a story and stripping it bare to shapes and lines.

How would you describe your style of art, & What made you gravitate toward that style?

I would describe it as abstract figure work,  but honestly, I feel like I am still refining my definition. It's funny because when I was younger I loved drawing comic book characters and never thought I would paint how I do now. I think when I started to get back into art after college, I realized that I didn't have a deep pull towards the realistic art I liked drawing as a kid. I was drawn to abstract work and now really enjoy working with large canvas. For a while, many of my pieces had a lot of tribal patterns added to them. Last year, I began painting figures without this pattern which left very simple and delicate line work. I've since fallen in love with that delicate nature.
