I've always been interested in drawing as a means of building form, which has come from a lifelong love of faces and the way they are visually organized. In my work I experiment with how facial expressions, lines and textures interact with the empty space around them. This often makes for images that seem to be in precarious positions between reality and abstraction, and provides me with room to consider a variety of ways to intertwine them. I’m greatly influenced by horror and science fiction, especially in mid-century film and television, and I've come to love how the imagery in these genres explores uncertainty and anxiety as visual elements.
