Like a foggy morning spent exploring nature, my work aims to bring mystery, contemplation, and quiet delight with an elusive simplicity that offers both serenity and a portal of curiosity. My art explores the play between abstraction and realism, and I enjoy blurring the line of where they meet. I value the timelessness of black and white yet equally look to harness the beauty and expression of color. My inspiration rises from the natural world, language and literature, the body, spirituality and religion, and the rich heritage of artists and creators who came before me.
