I make paintings of women. They are depictions of my girlfriends and myself in singular moments of self-reflection and celebration. My style tends to be bold and graphic. Whether capturing a glance, an irreverent bootie shot, or someone daydreaming, the figures tend to not face the viewer, but rather to each be in a contemplative state. Formal elements such as color, light, and tightly cropped spaces help create specific moods.

I hope to unlock something extraordinary in everyday scenes. My work is tied to the reality and imagination inherent in the feminine realm.
