Statement

It all stems from fear…the fear of time and loss. Time, the juggernaut, is an unstoppable force that can never be conquered. My art reflects my fear of time. I paint peaceful moments that can be cherished, lost, or distorted by memory.


Inspired by numerous artists, art movements, and styles, I create paintings of present day that capture something I want to remember…a feeling, a scene, or an individual… that precise moment.
