Artist Statement

Inspired by the many artistic elders who surrounded me while growing up, I began drawing with graphite at a young age, pursuing realism, and later exploring oil paints and sculpture.

I’ve always been fascinated by people, and the human condition. Representations of vulnerability and powerlessness are thus the hallmarks of my work, themes which come from my life and also from literature. When regarding my subjects and visions, I hope that viewers discover aspects of themselves, evoking the visceral response that only art can command.

As I develop in my expressions, I am compelled to make statements regarding the basis for, and merit of, traditions we take for granted. I want viewers to question themselves, their comfortable habits, their received prejudices, all apart from their complacent spaces within commonality.
