I strive to convey more than a physical representation. Each art is intended to represent a narrative. I work from life models. I encourage my subject to talk to me as I create. I listen, striving to understand how their realities have imprinted them. I capture the stories, tell it visually, so that viewers can feel the substance and beauty in these subtleties. I produce a work that transcends a superficial representation, and instead becomes one that reflects the shared stories common to all of us.
