My work creates celebration and self-discovery. I take photos of people and places that uplift me, and re-create them with paint to invoke more enthusiasm, freedom, beauty, and spiritual resonance.

Painting oil portraits of inspiring people connects me to the healing I’d like to see more of in my life, literally, and it articulates characteristics I want to embody and honor.
