About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I believe it is the job of the artist to give life to subjects that consume their mind, in an effort to better understand themselves as an individual, as well as the role they play in an interconnected world. By using the elements of design I create visual reactions to personal experiences and use these means to explore the limits of the human condition. Through the creative process, staying true to myself and the subject matter are paramount. My intent is to express my private truths in a hope that they may inspire others to act honestly with themselves and to others, while also considering how disturbing our world can be when we choose otherwise. I hope to go beyond the conscious surface to unveil truths that were not obvious at the start so that the work has a transformative quality while exploring resonating themes of transparency, loss, the human body, and sexuality.
