"

I am continually inspired by the portrait and human form and by the complexity and subtlety of emotion conveyed through a simple pose or gesture.

I enjoy presenting subtle emotions through a simple pose while occasionally taking away the context in an abstract manner.

My paintings emphasize visual impact over narrative context, focusing on the subtle orchestration of my subject within a framework of design. I create a deliberate push-and-pull between near-photorealistic detail and my own vocabulary of visual glitches that challenge that very realism. This duality is central to my work and allows the figures I paint to remain wholly representational while functioning abstractly - evoking emotion without defining it "
