To me, the idea of truth is a production. The endless knot of perception demands simplification in order to be understood and used, which in turn potentiates inconsistency. I seek awareness of the fallacies, assumptions, and oversimplifications in my own interpretation of existence. My artwork often explores various iterations of the themes of perception, epistemology, anthropological context, time, and the uncanny. I combine surreality, symbolism, and representational aspects to create strange thought-provoking visual situations related to those concepts. I hope to provoke questions rather than provide answers for them.

I am currently studying drawing and painting in Purdue University’s MFA program with an expected graduation date of May 2021. I graduated in 2016 from Colorado State University with a BFA in Drawing.
