“I am presently exploring the ideas of community diversity,
contrasts of love and loss, memories of childhood, and finding beauty in the broken. I feel my artistic style is a mix of photo realism and expressionism. I prefer to work in a combination of watercolor, gouache and ink, or acrylic sometimes combined with different texture media.
When one of my paintings shows texture, whether actual or implied, I feel it pulls the audience into the piece. Each of the resulting works is rich in its own story and symbolism, inspired by color theory and societal iconography.
I enjoy working from photographs I take myself, whether conjured or discovered in my adventures. I feel the paintings I create are a vibrant translation of my world... an opportunity to capture a moment in time and share it with others. I hope to express personal stories of love, joy, and loss, the struggles and celebrations of life that everyone can understand.”
