Artist Statement

My work attempts to capture the individuality and imperfections of a subject and to emphasize the deeper psychological meaning relating to alternately the human subconscious and the dream state.

My background in psychology and the arts, in concert with knowledge and intuition, allows me to create a physical interpretation of the emotions and feelings that a work's subject invokes within me. I strive to excel in deeply detailed observation and examination of people, and to distil that observation into an awakening of thoughts and emotions in my audience. My use of numerous techniques, styles, and mediums stems from an effort to not only increase my versatility as an artist, but to tailor the work to best express the nature of my subjects.

Art not only expresses the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions.
