I am an artist living in Joshua Tree, California.

My style is influenced by instructional graphics, video games and the look of vintage comics of the 1940s. I draw uniform lines on a computer to strip away some of the human element and expressive quality seen in non-digital work. I use perspective and unnatural colors to set up a voyeuristic feeling and create an unsettling mood. I am interested in the combination of a purely functional illustration style with an emotional scene.

My subject matter typically consists of people and simple environments. I aim to create a sense of ambiguity and allow the viewer to imagine their own narrative.
