Artist Statement

I like the moments in life where you get out of your head and experience your surroundings in an intuitive or reflexive manner. I love the eerie calm of an empty street in an old part of town and the visceral emotions invoked by an iconic image. It is this experience that I try to convey in my painting and drawing.
