Creating is something that has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Self taught, I began drawing at a very young age. I didn't start painting until much later in life. As a child I often found myself utilizing my imagination to keep me entertained. That sense of wonder and playfulness can at times been seen in the artwork that I create focused on children as the central theme.
As I grew up and began to feel the affects of my expanding depression and slowly began dealing with some buried traumas, I found comfort in something that I had walked away from years earlier, art. Finding my way back down this path to a familiar friend has been both comforting, exposing and enlightening.
Many of my earliest works are black and white graphite and charcoal on paper. It wasn't until early 2018 that I discovered I could indeed still express my voice even in color. Each of the pieces you see on this site are exposing for me as I often remark that my art is a view into my soul that is still coming into focus for both myself and for the world.
