Statement

My artwork is a reflection of how I feel about my life and the experiences that have shaped it thus far. It is largely about the people who have come in and out of my life, the ones who are still around and the ones who aren't, and all the memories I've made and am still making.  I strive for my work to be an honest interpretation of my day-to-day life.

My work is oil on canvas and varies largely in size and subject matter.  I focus mostly on abstracting from realistic elements I am familiar with, using Photoshop as a tool for formulating my ideas into images that will serve as the basis for my paintings.
