My series and individual pieces are very closely connected to my thoughts, experiences and how I process the world around me. When I collaborate on commissions with clients I am always delighted at the opportunity to create work that is a reflection of the individual; stemming from a particular experience, their current lifestyle or future paths. In creating such a personalized pieces for someone allows me to give them a visual representation of themselves in a surreal abstract format.

My process starts with discussions on content and style; usually we look through my portfolio for me to see what inspires my client. We talk about the focus for the piece and I compose sketches as we talk, we consult and refine any changes that need to be made before completing the final sketch. Once I begin painting, the collaborative process opens the door for the client to give feedback and watch the piece grow.
