Digital mock up for a traditional media painting > made from individual layers > I create from photos I take > of patterns in nature and man made objects > and patterns i make up.  I distill, re-draw, and remix selected photo segments into solid black on white graphic elements to work with > I then begin composing the piece quickly and loosely, allowing for random chaos to unfurl into increasing states of organization > I get a lot of inspiration from electronic music, particularly techno and house music, which provide me with endless inner visions > I see my paintings as visual music, composed in much the same way electronic musicians compose music, sound by sound, layer by layer into a complex yet harmonious symphonic experience.
