Artist Statement

I consider myself a traditional painter but one who is also very much fascinated with art and tech collaboration. I enjoy exploring how new technology can be used with my work to more actively engage the viewer or to be incorporated to enhance or alter the viewer experience.

Recent Developments

Over the last few years the themes informing my art and practice have become more and more intertwined with my interest in tech and modern communication. Every artwork tells a story and AR, near field communication tags, video, social media integration and other digital elements enable me to present my paintings in innovative and captivating ways and to even entirely change the way one experiences them.

In June of 2017 I purchased some bitcoin and soon after I fell down the proverbial rabbit hole. Since then, my paintings have focused mostly on cryptocurrency themes, ideas and people. 

My genesis NFT dropped on SuperRare December 2019. EthGirl was a collaboration with the creative genius Alotta Money and it opened up my eyes to a whole new world of creative opportunity and tech potential.
