I have been drawing and painting most of my life and can usually be found with a brush or pen in hand. I graduated from University of Louisville with a BA in Art History.
I am a representational painter mixing expressionistic and somewhat imagined ideas together. I spend most of my time painting both in the studio and outdoors En plein air. I love nothing more than painting from life and the challenges of mixing real and imagined ideas to portray internal and external emotions.
Painting for me is all about the emotion I get from a subject and can give back to the viewer in a way that draws you in for a momentary experience and take you on a journey.
“ I strive to capture the essence of my subjects through my own thoughts and emotions.
As an artist, I engage with the world by exploring and interpreting both my own experiences and emotions and how I view others through my paintings.
The way I process involves immersing myself in the world around me, observing and analysing the subtle nuances of everyday life.
In my daily practice, I always create a space for introspection and contemplation and try to express these through my work, and in turn hope others will reflect on their own experiences and emotions. I am passionate about using art as a tool for connection, empathy, and social change, and I strive to create work that encourages love and understanding.
Through my art, I hope to contribute to a greater sense of community, encouraging viewers to engage with the world around them with a sense of curiosity. Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create work that is both aesthetically compelling and emotionally resonant, providing a window into the human experience that is both unique and universal.”
