The result is a work body which effectively attracts attention and captures the viewer for a personal and lively interaction.

“My work is about expressing the beauty that I see reflected in life and the world around us. I begin with an emotion or vision of a painting in my head and then intuitively seek to find it on the canvas. The spontaneous and layered nature of my process gives each painting its on unique energy. I draw from my experiences of personal narratives, travel, and cultural studies in my work, and attempt to explore them with a curious optimism for the human condition.

Primarily self-taught, I enjoy working in highly-pigmented acrylic paints and regularly incorporate gold leaf, found papers, resin, oil pastels, enamel and the list goes on. I view the process of Art-making as a birth-right, a testament of our fleeting existence, and an ethereal reverence to the Unseen.

This is my story and I am writing it in color.”
