Piece description from the artist

I find that by synthesizing memories and observations with my photographs, my paintings become more than an enlarged version of the original snapshot; this is the place where my work leads me to artistic discovery. As the references I draw inspiration from begin to sever the connection from their place of origin, my painting begins to exist as its own entity; a moment which permits me creative emancipation.

The concept to suggest, rather than to illustrate in full, intrigues and challenges me everyday. How can I draw the observer in without overstating the subject and at the same time connect with their recollections? As I paint, the personal connection between artist and viewer is always on my mind; my work is a bit of personal information to share, I want the spectator to know me. My paintings are meant to have strength yet remain uncomplicated and sensitive; a respite from the tumult in the world today.
