As an oil painter, I create in an expressive contemporary style. My work centers on strong emotional and narrative connections. It is influenced by everyday living, observing, and daydreaming, and informed by the intimacy of personal stories and memories, both my own and those collected. The subject matter is rather widespread and eclectic, but it all most often reflects on ideas of home, identity, beauty, and compassion. I use texture and movement to focus your engagement and prefer the challenges of a limited primary palette. I believe art is a necessity, it reaches across culture, language and time, and can teach us a compassionate understanding for one another. I work compulsively feeling this responsibility to honor humanity’s need for harmony.
