Since re-locating to my hometown one year ago I have been documenting my father and his continually changing environment. In this effort I often use photography to generate source material that can later be mined for my paintings. In addition to this, the developing art form of Instagram functions very well as a visual diary. Due to it's size, accessibility and ease of use I can quickly snap a picture, edit it and have an immediate reflection of what I'm thinking about. I enjoy this contrast to my paintings, which can take a significantly longer time to develop. I encourage you to visit the "Links" section of my website where you can find a link to my Instagram account and one to my Tumblr, both contain further examples of my work.
