ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My relationship with my work is something I’ve poured countless hours into. I want to explore the beauty of nature and complexities of the figure while weaving a narrative into my scenes. I believe every picture deserves a story and I do my best to express my vision in a painterly way while trying to find a balance between realism and fantasy.
