About Me:
Artist Statement

Above all else, my work serves as a form of catharsis. I use imagery and theme to communicate complex ideas and emotion in a way that written language will not allow. It is not that I lack sufficient vocabulary. Rather than struggling to put together words in a perfect sequence to effectively communicate an idea or an emotion, I use my work. I want my audience to experience an emotional connection to certain themes and imagery. For example, when I begin my work, I may think to myself, what does temptation look like? Arrogance? Loss?
My work is almost exclusively figurative. Some have argued that objective or figurative work is dead. Why bother painting or sculpting a human when you can just take a picture? I completely disagree. Art is an incredibly self-involved...
