I paint from the inside out. Though my subconscious is certainly my project manager, the world around me is my dream team.
The intricacies of a single cell, a molecule, an atom, let alone a human being or ecosystem, inspire and awe me every day. I'm immensely grateful for this human experience, and to live in this incredible corner of the earth, without war or famine.
I weave the energies of my subjects and surroundings into my work, whether I'm live painting at an event, visioning a commission or designing company logos. I do not simply recapitulate what the eye can see; there's so much more I aim to capture in every piece.
I create only from a space of joy and clarity, and only as it feels right. No piece will ever carry the energy of "I have to do this to earn a living" or "I'd rather be doing something else." In this way, my work will always be integral with the principle that has always guided me:
If you love life, life will love you back.
In knowing that all we have is now and all we are is everything around us, I do my best to "be the change I wish to see in the world", to carry a smile, to take the time to help others. I aim to spread joy every day and look for the beauty in everyone I meet. Connecting with people of all walks of life, creeds, passions and orientations is one of my greatest joys!
