My art explores symbolism and conveys meaning beyond what the viewer sees. There is always a hidden message and context to be discovered. My pieces journey into many states of mind and consciousness through varying figures and settings. The composition of my art allows the foreground and background to depict separate yet connected stories. Common themes of my artwork include nature — human nature as well as the nature of the environment — and introspection. My art is a reflection of myself and an examination of human existence as a whole. I hope to give viewers a visual experience they can relate to as they take time to consider their own thoughts and their relationship with the world around them.
