I am interested in our relationship to each other, to other species and to our environment and am drawn to the narrative behind a painting, one that I try to express through symbolism and loose associations that spark connections and allude to truths that lie just beneath the surface. Often dark or playful, but always beautiful because it is beauty that touches our soul and opens our hearts and minds.
