COMMENTARY
Much of my work is inspired by contemporary experiences relating to social or political situations. I begin with a focus on a particular emotion dealing with an event or condition, and develop the painting from there. Whether it is despair from losing one’s home, helplessness in the face of sexual violence, or revolutionary excitement and fervor, I draw upon feelings that are universal to the human experience.

Through these paintings I seek to connect the viewer to the subject on the most basic level, and in doing so, encourage dialogue.
