Reflect yourself in art.
I strive to create works that are approachable, with a deeper meaning to peel back and uncover over time, like a story.
With my paintings, I strive to create a parallel sense of the present and the
eternal inviting the viewer into intimate questions of self.
Creating art is a continual process of moving forward,
pulling back & looking for the whole story.

Art has taught me that life is not always about what we
bring, contribute, or add.
Often, it’s what we take away, or don't say, that makes a moment sublime.
