Indoctrinated into horror films, the occult, and the supernatural at an absurdly young age, I continue a passion of said themes into my art. Creative inspiration is pulled from Folk (outsider) art, Primitive art, and sprinkled with a tiny dose of Clive Barker.
Ambiguity is more fun than certitude, and my goal is to draw the viewer into using their own imagination to construct a narrative. The goal in presenting my work is a hope that others will find it pleasing to the eye, revive a memory, or take comfort in knowing that another human shares the same passions. (Troy was born and raised in Portland, Oregon…and stubbornly refuses to leave. He holds a BFA, reads incessantly, and spends almost all free time compulsively creating art)
