After quitting my job two years ago and pursuing art I have been hyper-focused on my sculptural wood-layered pieces, oil painting, and murals.
My work is not something that many are doing in the art scene. I am a painter, but I also create these very intricately cut wood-layered pieces. They are very unique and tell a story on their own. I try to mix my painting, drawing, and wood skills to create something very unique that people don’t see very often.
I use a laser cutter to cut my sheets of wood, use stain, and paint to create different effects. I try to always reuse different slabs of wood that I have and try to make smaller pieces out of scraps.
I am enamored by perspective and the tricks it can play on our brains. I have always wanted to create something epic, different, lasting, and impactful and I want to have an impact with my work.
