My source material and inspirations come from films, people I know, found photographs, and art history. Drawing on my passion for acting, storytelling, and film, my work indirectly deals with emotions and human relationships through the medium of archetypal iconography. My work has been described as “a field where Frida Kahlo and Luc Tuymans can engage in pictorial conversation.” I use my personal voice to explore relationships and people on an intimate level. Focusing on mood and contextualizing my subject matter, I am able to make my work independent of its sources, rather than a mere representation of the material. In this way, my work is more open to the interpretation of the viewer, regardless of their background knowledge.
