Artist Statement

My art is a constant search for the best way to interpret the beauty of the world that I live in.

I don’t limit myself to one concept. Inspiration and knowledge change with each day and every experience. Each piece that I create, whether a photography piece or a painting is an extension from my past into my future. Where I have been and what I have seen I always marvel at the process. I have a story and whether it is with my paintings or my photography I want to connect my audience.
