While working in the sketchbook, I embrace an autonomous working style, which also presents itself in the work I produce. Depicting solitary figures reacting with one or more objects in the space they inhabit, I look to inject mystery to the art. There is moodiness, and the story isn’t quite clear even while subtle clues about the premise are provided to guide a viewer. Ultimately, what I create is a reaction to the thinking process that I engage in while working, and I have made it a rule to never begin a piece with pre-conceived ideas or notions in my mind. It my subconscious that delivers direction to me—and the narrative I have with my mind inspires the cause and effect of my sketches.
