Artist's Statement

My style of painting covers a broad range but it has one unifying concept: its low-angle perspective.

Although the realistic detail of my work can easily be mistaken for photorealism, the images are in fact highly filtered by my own imagination. Taking an original photographic image, I reorient the perspective to be from a low angle and create a new image that, while realistic, is charged with symbolism.
