Digital Art on Wood
Drawn to the natural environment, I see the world in bold, saturated colors and graphic, organic shapes. These are the fundamental charcateristics that define my signature style. Though deeply rooted in Americana, I am heavily influenced by Eastern, Hawaiian, and Polynesian art and culture. I find endless inspiration from ocean life, tropical plants, and exotic florals-which, when combined, become the foundation for prevelant themes. Texture, layers, contrast, scale, and heirarchy are tools that I am exploring with in order to create depth within an abstract aesthetic. I approach the viewer with an enlarged snapshot, forcing him to pause and look at my small canvas with its big image.
