Throughout my practice, I explore my emotional identity as a spiritual being having a human experience. I believe art is a crucial tool in understanding the deep inner-truths of our humanity. Furthermore, I create meaningful works in effort to connect with others on the core roots of our existence. My conceptual themes often involve self-exploration, healing social injustice, and coming back home to nature. I feel an innate pull toward the dynamic world we live in and use art as my tool to communicate a message of empathy for all living things. I explore the union of representation and abstract expression in my works. I believe these are the two fundamental archetypes that make up the framework of the universe. It is my intention as an artist, to use my creative practice as a vehicle for inspiration, reflection, and universal empathy in hopes of creating authentic connections across the globe.
