Artist Statement

My drawings and paintings are colorful, fill the entire surface, and have a lot of detail. I like to use a broad range of mediums, including acrylics, oils, gouache, and watercolor paints. I like to create realistically rendered life scenes, people, and natural subjects. By rendering the imagery the way that I do, I try to avoid abstraction in order to get my point across. My work will usually have the same color palette, which includes a mixture of pink, blue, and green tones. This is done to create certain tones that match my personal aesthetic.

I include subjects that relate to non-existent scenes and people; I like to create imagery that is unnatural to the real world. I try to illustrate my spiritual connection to nature and its creatures. I create images of reality, and, rarely, my personal life. This is important to me, because I like to be honest with others, even if they are strangers. I like to show people what the inside of my mind looks like with these colors, plants, animals, and vibrant scenes. 

Whenever I am feeling imaginative and peaceful, I usually like to create imagery that is pleasing and surreal to the eye in order to transport the viewer to a different scene. I incorporate nature and space, and often pair these subjects with figures as well. I’ve become fascinated by the beauty of nature and its connection to human beings, along with the mysterious unknown of space and animal life.
