As a contemporary realist painter I continue my journey of self exploration and understanding of the human subject. My desire to become one with everything living, fulfils who I am and in return I hope evokes an experience for the viewer. I paint in attempt to capture a fleeting moment and feeling of desire to experience it once more.

In my current body of work, I explore how to create naturalistic images with highly rendered and abstract paint marks, these layered marks of finished and unfinished represent my personal state of mind as an artist.
