kyle moved to seattle in 2014 and continued creating abstract and mixed media works. in 2017 he began to develop what is now his signature style. he takes the basic material of osb particle board and transforms it with color and shape.
"the tiny individual segments of wood that make up the particle board intrigue me. it's like a paint by number. what excites me most, is the challenge of how to make each piece unique and different, while still working with the same material. bold colors and shapes are my go-to for the composition, then finishing each piece with high gloss resin for an interesting contrast of materials."
