My paintings are mythical, deeply rooted in a place of spirituality, capturing the symbolism of animals and light. Distinguished by bold marks and contrast, as well as jewel-toned colors and the appearance of light, many of my works look as if they are glowing from within. The boldness of my process combined with the use of symbolic imagery and the juicy richness of the oil paint create art that exudes spirituality and the ethereal.I want my artwork to inspire wonder and help you connect with what makes you powerful. If my paintings can illuminate the passions and destiny that stir within you, I have fulfilled my purpose. You have value and worth and your life has profound significance. May my artwork remind you that you are a magical being who can change the world.
