Artist Statement:

I was inspired early on by the realism of the Old Masters of the Renaissance period, marveling at their techniques for creating intricate detail and life-like images. The inspiration for my work comes from the interaction between science, art, and nature. I am fascinated with Nikola Tesla’s life story and inventions, particularly his theoretical technologies. Also a fan of DaVinci’s sketches, I often incorporate sketchbook-style figures, formulas, and equations into the backgrounds of my paintings. In one commissioned piece from the Rockets series, scientists from NASA who were enthusiastic about my work sent me the mathematical formulas for various theories they were working on and I incorporated them into the commissioned work.
