"I find a unique beauty in collectively having the ability to share an emotional bond with subjects who look like me while reflecting that beauty back into the eyes of those who don’t mirror me."
I source my inspiration as an artist from personal experiences, my obsession with understanding complex human emotions and elements of nature that pervade my deep spiritual connection to the world. I find a unique beauty in collectively having the ability to share an emotional bond with subjects who look like me while reflecting that beauty back into the eyes of those who don’t mirror me.
My goal in painting portraits is to capture the essence of a subject using nature as a means to visually express their spirit. Nature plays a vital role in my work. It’s from nature that we receive sustenance to be able to be born, live and return back when we pass. I think that fact in itself shows the deep connection we have to the natural world.
Art to me is not just simply painting on a surface and calling it finished, it’s an expressional form of catharsis that allows me to communicate the connection between life and art through creative means. Art will forever be my passion and form of therapy and I feel extremely blessed to be able to share my thoughts, ideas, and emotions with the world.
