I am an experimentalist.
I like to give my editorial observations about society, and challenge the status quo in both the depiction of the idea and the technique of capturing it.
My paintings reflect the story I am exploring so the audience can draw their own conclusions.
I strive to continually improve as an artist through experimentation, and tackling different mediums to create a new style.
I believe that the foundation of artwork should include strong lines, vibrant colors, and the power of light and reflection.
