Why I paint.

Art has always been a meaningful part of my life. My mom is an artist. I grew up making 'n messing with anything I could get my hands on.

Today, I paint to get back to that part of me. To use my hands, emerge out of my head, and be in touch with something deeper. Physical manifestations of a nonphysical state. Release. Catharsis. Exploration.

For me, painting is an attempt to answer a question. What happens when you dive into uncertainty? When you try to understand something that doesn't have any inherent narrative? When edge meets edge?

Below is a selection of my work. I am occassionally available for commissioned pieces. If you'd like to work together, I'd love to talk...
