I find human ability to relate to and sense a truth or story through the subtle unspoken language in a face endlessly inspiring.
It is my desire and honor to, not only translate the delicate beauty of the human form, but the unique essence, spirit, or story of the sitter into my paintings.
As a whole, my work seeks to explore and celebrate the human condition and our innate ability to find connection in ways that transcend understanding.
