About

Art has always been my way of expressing how I understand the world.  I am constantly inspired to create art that portrays the human condition in both a thoughtful and emotional way.

As I continue to explore humanity, my methodology is evolving.  Primarily a figurative artist, I am also drawn to the abstract treatment of surface.  And though most of my work has been 2 dimensional paintings, I have recently started experimenting with sculpture, collage and digital art.

It is my hope to continue to grow as an artist, pushing myself to learn new techniques, expanding my vision.  My goal is to be able to create the same visual affectivity while exploring different mediums and different directions in my art.
