My artwork is the descendent of self reflection. Matters of human anatomy, emotional comprehension and expression, or even fundamental religious reason, are interests that currently affect why and what it is I choose to depict. These topics are of organic and psychological origin, like the act itself of making art. My foundation in academic figure drawing and painting has engrained various ideologies into my creative process. I challenge the traditional properties of painting to complement my fleeting desires, this perpetually influences and expands my thought and body of work.
