I am inspired by beauty, joy, ugliness, and pain. Culture and life experiences fill my work along with the discovery of newness. I am always pushing searching and discovering the new while at the same time holding on to the old. It’s not just an aspect of my art but an aspect of me that finds its way into my art. The nuance of the human experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of my process. Each subject is both an individual that presents themselves to me as well as an interpretation of that individual.
