     "Duality and opposition are the main focus in my work. I believe everything has an opposite; a spiritual and temporal nature. Whether this is shown in a landscape by means of erosion or decay; or exhibited in human nature via the struggle between good and evil, light or dark. Touching upon these truths is paramount while creating a painting, it’s my aim to show and let others feel that tension, that duality of being, the constant battle between two forces. I employ color/shapes, textures and line as the primary vehicle to express these emotions in my work, to hopefully enlighten each of us to feel and see the battle either within or around us."
