About

IMG_6454

The process of making art is something I revere. Letting the world around you fade away as you narrow focus on minute details throughout a piece is meditative for me. There is something really satisfying about encapsulating a moment of inspiration through the medium of a painting. The sense of permanence, expanding the feeling through various avenues and reliving it in your mind creates a connection to a piece that ties up that block of memory into a neat little bow. 

I’m inspired by concepts that mean something to me personally, or offer value to the audience by provoking some type of response and hopefully some new idea they can take with them. I respond to the effects of color, light and atmosphere on the subject. 

I make art whenever I can, and I hope you all can enjoy it too!
