Art is a vessel that takes me on a journey of discovery. My inspiration comes from the desire to explore spiritual realms that exist deep down beneath the structures of society.

In my work, life, death and rebirth are recurring themes often expressed with a juxtaposition between darkness and light. Raw power, beauty and purity are other ingredients in these emotionally charged, textural works.

I don't begin a piece with an end result in mind. The paintings evolve and take shape during the fluid and organic creative process.

My career as a graphic designer has run concurrently with my fine art career, informing my paintings with composition, color and design sensibilities, but allowing me the freedom to channel raw forms and emotions onto canvas and board, instead of creating pieces that are meticulously right for a client. I enjoy both endeavors and hope that you enjoy viewing the soulful work of my heart.
