With oil paint as my central medium, my current work embodies a connection to people, stories, and places around me. I'm constantly drawn to the impact that artwork has on a space. It's inspiring to me that a piece of art an reflect the personality of anyone who connects to it. I create to reveal a similar visual language through line and gesture, as well as both an impulsive and premeditated application of color. My intent is for each painting to resolve in a way that it invokes a distinct feeling or memory of a place or moment.
