I paint portraits that focus on creating a connection so often missing between people. Pulled from dreams, visions and everyday life my exaggerated characters are inspired by unique facial features and movements. Through experimenting with oils, acrylics and watercolors I create colorful human faces with distorted features and paint. I believe our emphatic abilities are limited by the visual illusions of reality so I aim to reach beyond these limitations and truly represent the person or feelings inside. We can never truly know with a glance the story or truth of a person, it requires more inquiry and depth. I make that challenge the fuel for my artistic journey. I invite the viewer to challenge their perspective of beauty and human form along side me in my work.
