"I am on a constant search for truth in experience and beauty. These two qualities, along with a playfulness of charachter inform my current work.
I can definitely see how my particular fine art background informs my work, I love the painterly quality of many of my subjects and also enjoy the layering of colors and patterns. My subject matter tends to consist of urban imagery, animals, and nature. My hope is that all these factors combined create something that is unique and magical."
