Artist's Statement

My goal as a painter is to elicit emotion.

Being fascinated with the human figure's ability to express emotion, I am determined to create through form and posture bold imagery that cannot be ignored. I believe that the connections we make with images can be powerful, becoming a way to accept how we feel and the need for healing.

My hope is that my paintings can be a source of therapy through recognition and empathy.
