I have been drawing since kindergarten and learned to paint during my higher education. I started out as an abstract painter, but decided I was better served working within the classical genres. This provided me with a rule against which to measure my progress which helped improve my technical reach. My style eventually evolved into a mingling of my abstract tendencies with my representational work. I will often paint a subject in legion, crowding off the edges of the canvas. This serves to illustrates the dynamic of opposites such as the individual vs. the communal and randomness vs. order.
