My work showcases the emotional experience of my subjects. All living and nonliving beings crave to be seen, and I strive to provide my subjects with a visual platform to express this desire to be truly visible. My subjects are often in a state of sadness, contemplation, and solitude. They are brave as they reveal themselves as vulnerable beings. Art provides viewers the opportunity of witnessing both the artist’s and the artist’s subject’s true selves. Through my art, I invoke the intimate relationships between people, buildings, and nature, in order to foster more meaningful and authentic connections.
