About the Artist

In 2009 I picked up a brush and began to paint. As an assistant under artist, Robert Standish, I was inspired to become a painter. Recently, my style has evolved into a slightly distorted and surreal one but still clings to photorealistic aspirations.
I spent one year refining my technique in the painting/drawing program at Atelier Stockholm (Swedish Academy for Realist Art) where I studied the classical drawing methods of the old masters.
My most recent series of oil paintings are concerned with light, movement and reflection. There is a sense of mystery that is transposed when trying to grasp the image of an object in motion. This feeling of ambiguity leaves the viewer with seemingly timeless or, time suspended in air impression. And the overlapping realities presented when one image lays directly on top of another, as in a reflection, stirs my imagination. The diversity of light and its effects continue to spur me on to new studies which I choose to explore through oil painting.
My dynamic and colorful canvases are easily relatable. I hope to continue to create figurative works of art that are inspiring and relevant today.
