My stylistic approach began with a genre of music and iconography; psychedelia. As a child, I was mesmerized by the bright colors, hallucinatory imagery, and idea of visual manifestation through sound. While studying the work of well known psychedelic artists, I learned to communicate through pattern and composition. I entered art school as a figure painter and practiced drawing as a preparatory process. My paintings had chromatic colors and patterns, but I considered them decorative. I began to experiment with different materials and processes like Automatic Drawing as a reaction to my interest in Dada, Fluxus, and Surrealism. I took this process further by working only with ink on paper to maintain the immediacy of every permanent mark. After graduating, I began constrictions and stopped using colors and imagery characteristic of psychedelia and Surrealist painting altogether. Since then, I have been developing three other series titled reductions, portraits, and figures. My drawings have become an abstract map of highly detailed automatic textures.
