The artwork I create is a spontaneous capturing of the authentic moments in our own human nature.

Instinct and Intuition drive the work. Mainly figurative, the forms are made without a preconceived idea of how the results will appear.

The figures, or faces, are caught in transition. Their honest state of being is revealed. Some are suspended in a moment of ambiguity. Soft yet solid, vulnerable yet empowered.

The essence of all these works is the gesture itself. A slight movement, or subtle facial expression can reveal an abundance of experiences. This continuously fascinates me and I struggle to capture this in my work.

Fluctuation of thought, mood, and identity are constantly happening in our daily experience. Even the simplicity of staying still holds a plethora of energy.
