My work explores celebration.

I take iPhone photos and re-create them with paint to invoke enthusiasm, freedom, beauty, and spiritual resonance.

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