Artist Statement

My art is a visual expression of the intersection between my dreams and my conscious reality, particularly those moments when I am not fully asleep and my mind is free to wander. Inspired by philosophical ideas, current events, personal challenges, nature, and much more, I reflect upon how I want to visually express this subject matter and then execute that vision. My paintings are thus metaphors for my experiences as I try to make sense of my life, understand the bigger picture, decide where I fit into this chaotic world, and create some order or structure to comprehend it all.
