words from the artist

Welcome to my website! Enjoy the above tabs to find out more about my work. The photo gallery shows a few of the various forms of art work I create. Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like more information. Thanks for visiting!



Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is [born] an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” I truly believe that everyone can be an artist when we do not let ourselves be constrained by social constructions and our own insecurities.


One aspect I enjoy about art is the process of the art making.  I like getting my hands dirty drawing, painting, gluing, ripping, coloring or climbing up to the perfect vantage point to shoot a picture.  I find myself getting lost in the process of creating.  This also goes hand-in-hand with my love of texture, layers, and patterns.


I also enjoy using color as representation. I love using color to embody feelings of people, places, objects, or situations.
