What made you become an artist?
I didn’t have much of a choice in becoming an artist. Ever since I was a child I had a drive to create. The truth is that I can’t help but make art. I am obsessed with communication through visual and tactile means; it fuels me.
Is mark making an important part of your work?
Mark making is a central asset of my work. Every piece is a new experiment in mark making challenging myself to let go of control and allow human error and happenstance to develop preliminary marks.
What inspires you?
I guess I could say what inspires me the most in life is imperfection. I am captivated by deteriorating buildings, old frayed advertising posters and objects misplaced on the street. Everything is layers of miscellaneous shapes and colors, concealing and revealing.
