My oil paintings are raw intimate moments that often go unnoticed but not forgotten. I seek to create an unfiltered narrative through the subject’s honest embracement of their flaws. By reimagining my subject’s most exposed moments I attempt to go deeper into our lives and peel back the layers. The bold color and brushwork is intended to touch at the subjects personality and relationship with their environment and the world at large. My recent work focuses on the idea of embracement; how we embrace ourselves, each other and life.
