My digital work allows me to explore vibrant use of color in a medium that I am able to control in great detail. I enjoy examining the natural world, and manipulating landscapes in ways that bring out an ‘otherworldly’ element in the image.

I want for the observer to ponder whether or not a landscape of my creation actually exists in reality, and in what capacity it possibly exists. I often examine places that are not visibly pleasing, and create an image that I find amazing beauty in. Through my work, I am able to alter the world I see with my eyes, and make it beautiful in my mind’s eye. The result is often alien, but always subjective. That is the inherent nature of art. It is inherently subjective.
