“My parents enrolled me in an after school art class around the age of six. While I can not remember a time that I was not fascinated by the medium of paint or inspired to draw, this experience solidified a fixation. My passion for the act of painting spawns largely from a desire to engage a sense of connection through the reasoning that these unfoldings are the most authentic offerings of self. The process of layering and removing mediums on a surface is a recording of my movements, thoughts, and perspective within time and space. It is both a preservation of memory and an open dialogue.”
