This body of work explores lands that are unknown, imaginary and fantasy based. Inspired by my travels and different environments these works combine vibrant colors and shifting perspective with abstract and representational impulses. I work to build abstraction and the rhythm of these not-so-far-away places using both observations of everyday landscapes and the movement of the brush itself. These invented landscapes serve as a means to explore how interior fantasy can shape perception and expectations. They are meant to captivate the imagination and evoke emotion.
