Painting is a way to channel experience and inspiration back into the world. Like other mediums, it is a means of reflection and communication, possessing the ability to manifest the inner-workings of one's mind and connection with life. It is painting's directness of expression that keeps the timeless art form alive today.
I find inspiration simply in the miracle of sight and tend to be easily captivated by the ephemeral nuances of material reality. Through my experience of life, along with the guidance of artists, writers, philosophers, and scientists; I hope to be developing a way to view the world with fresh eyes. It is this keen relationship with sight that drives me to create imagery that I hope is captivating like the world around me and that can contribute to the visual vocabulary of this generation.
I received my BFA from SFAI in 2014 and I am currently based in Southern California.
