Art tells a story. It is a special, non-verbal, non-literal way of communication that touches us in places that no amount of words or thoughts can reach. It excites, it questions, leaves things open that need to be left open, it intrigues and heals. I am forever drawn to depicting the human drama and its mysteries through this magical language.
I am most inspired by the past. From the ancient world, to classic film, to vintage snapshots, I depict human interactions from the most humble and everyday, to the most profound and mystical.
Each person has a personal drama and a special journey they are on. Every piece I create, no matter what has inspired it, depicts a scene that can have meaning and guidance that can help you on your way. When you feel a resonance and a fascination with a work of art, it means it too is a part of your journey. My hope is that you find yourself and your personal story reflected in my work.
I mean to infuse my art with beauty, originality, mystery, and grace. I hope you find them aesthetically beautiful, technically interesting, and nourishing to your soul. I seek to enliven, inspire, and enrich through my art.
