People are my subject. I am interested in the formal beauty and shape of the human figure. I seek to engage viewers through the expressiveness of hands, faces, and body language. This focus is rooted in a belief that we all have an affinity to images of people; we intuitively empathize and connect through familiarity.
Conceptually, I am interested in the role of community and human connectivity in our lives. I am fascinated by human interactions with one another, with environments, with contemporary culture, and with daily objects.
I question my own habits or experiences, then seek to find universal themes shared by others. Ultimately the artwork is a synthesis of what I find important or interesting about these subjects in order to raise important questions about what it means to be human.
