My artistic style has transformed over the years from a strong play on realism, to an altered sense of the term. I utilize realistic traits like perspective to create an illusion of space and depth, while allowing for a more painterly representation of the subject. I allow myself the flexibility to cross stylistic boundaries but often fight the urge to perfect lines. My works present a path of vulnerability and convergence of developmental progressions. My mission as an artist is to effect positive change in the world through art and charitable giving.
