I am working on some new pieces that began on a whim and have turned into a larger project that I am continuing to explore and work on. Someone gave me a large stack of 40″x26″ bristol paper. I wasn’t sure what to do with all of it, but I always get very excited about new sheets of blank, white paper.
I began creating work with no end in mind. Usually, I like to have a purpose or a job for my paintings and illustrations, but these were made purely out of my own interest in creating something for myself. Luckily, I began to really enjoy creating these large watercolor and gouache paintings, and I have now begun creating an entire body of work based upon them.
They are definitely inspired by my love of psychological horror. There’s no subject that interests me more, and I’ve always felt a kinship with horror that I do not feel with any other genre.
