CV

 

Each work of art contains elements of life, bits and pieces that reveal the anatomy of our existence. Often times my paintings suggest universal themes such as life and death, fate and circumstance, joy and sadness, human relationships, religion, graphic symbols and modern culture. These themes can be interpreted on many different levels. Whether its an emotional connection or a visual attraction, I endeavor to create an art that most accurately represents the purity of a unique experience. Art is the external expression of an internal emotion.
