Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

I use painting as a medium to expand the range of possibilities that allow me to express my creativity through visual narrative. I am interested in the human experience and I draw inspiration from life. I believe that a painting should be more than just art, I believe that art should express multiple layers of narrative within a particular work. I strive to achieve this by creating artwork that speaks of trauma, pain, and redemption. I do this with the intent to expose my own personal trauma, in the belief that this will create an environment for healing. I want the viewer to use my art as means to acknowledge our commonality and create understanding. I draw inspiration from artist like Monet because he saw the world through a different lens, and I strive to capture simplicity within chaos. I am a social realist and I draw no lines in the sand, I am here to bear wittiness and be the voice of our generation. Urna Semper Fidelis
