Much of the work I do is autobiographical; I often work through things in my head on canvas. Sometimes it is only when I put my thoughts and feelings on canvas that I gain clarity and perspective. I experiment with various media, textures, and found items as I believe that meaning in life is found through understanding and exploring all of the different layers of who we are. I think anyone can connect to my work in some way because it is emotional, uncensored, and honest and thus mirrors the struggle that all humans have—on a conscious or unconscious level—to understand their purpose in life. Every day we face opportunities to sift through the wonderous, complicated, unfair, joyous, devastating, rewarding experiences we meet in our lives. I am called to chronicle my own such experiences in my art.
