Do I Look Expensive?
Select your print and framing options
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. Fashion photography has always been an influence and I love to include sunglasses, jewelry, and bathing suits (I often paint summery beach scenes) as a way of adding reflections, texture, or pattern. I hope to unlock something extraordinary in everyday scenes. My work is tied to the reality and imagination inherent in the feminine realm.
