My work attempts to capture a sense of place from the electric landscape. Each game’s identity translates into visual elements of my paintings. Different games will push me to use different strokes, colors, and levels of abstraction. Dreamy qualities of watercolor provide feelings of wanderlust and nostalgia. The end result is a travelogue of strange and wonderful places that invite you to step inside the painting.
