  • Biography
My work describes human drama and sensation expressed though abbreviated form and composition. The subject matter of my work is drawn from real life and consistently concerns an enduring interest a singular motif or narrative, exploring the possibility that motif has in conveying the feeling the work attempts to emanate. This choice of subject comes from my integral belief that parts of our worldly experience that we perhaps pay little attention to contain cues for imagery that describes man's elemental experiences.
