Since a very young age I have considered myself to be an artist. My art is about documenting experiences that have impacted my life personally – the places and faces that have shaped me into being who I am today. For me, to really connect with and experience my surroundings, I have to explore it on paper or canvas. My art is never about being a realistic picture of what I see only with my eyes, but rather an expression of how I feel about a particular subject perceived by all the senses. Any given piece of mine is only successful if, when viewed over and over again, it evokes the same feelings the experience it depicts was meant to through elements such as line, texture, colour, pattern, and varying levels of abstraction and realism.

I hope you enjoy my work which you can see here on this site’s gallery. You can also learn more about me through my blogs. I welcome your feedback and hope you’ll contact me.
