“My paintings and drawings provoke imagination and interpretation while seeking to capture the aesthetic and the beautiful. I am interested in work that involves solitary figures and faces in close up, suggesting introspection and the states of being alone. The emotions I capture in my work are often autobiographical.”

“Heavily influenced by the Expressionists and interested in glances and visage, I work to encapsulate specific moods and emotions with a modern style, a sometimes dark visual content, and abstract colours. Themes and ideas about surviving adversity and the everyday angst of being human and alive are evident in my work. I create paintings that are a testament to resilience through the process of introspection. My visages or mask-like forms, sometimes painted with bright and vibrant colours, could be seen to contradict the much darker themes I pursue. My work engages with inner worlds rather than the external and my images express these ideas.”

“It thrills me to exhibit in an artistic setting where my work can invoke a reaction from viewers and peers on a level much deeper than the surface image might suggest. I strive to produce work that is crafted to encourage a trigger or a thought process in someone else’s mind. My goals as an artist are centered on visual stimuli that inform and expose my drawings and paintings.”
