My inspiration to create is based off of my surroundings and the emotions I experience. I enjoy to make work about topics that aren’t talked about as much or display satire and dark humor, whether it be a serious topic of an illness or my hatred for children. Having an equal balance of serious and humorous work is what I aspire to.
My medium of choice is acrylic paint and any pencil I can get my hands on. The smoothness of paint and how I can create a range of dimension and color on a canvas speaks to me. Drawing with pencil is therapeutic and is my start of beautiful painting, illustration, and idea. With painting, I use an open pallet which gives me the freedom to capture life on a 2D surface. The way a surface can go from light to dark so swiftly is beautiful and blending, whether it be a dry or wet medium is important to me. I work in a realist style, incorporating illustrative aspects and narratives in my work.
Portraits and the human body are most evident in my work. Using the human form allows me to express emotions more clearly. I include life in my artwork to embed more beauty and a range of different perspectives, interpretations, and experiences of my life. I want the viewer to have their own interpretations of my artwork. My artwork transcends another life and purpose on a 2D surface speaks to what I feel and experience.
