An overwhelming feeling or thought, usually evoked by a life event, is the origin of each piece. I explore what it could mean to have these questions through subject matter such as portraiture and the figure by building a visual dialogue with shapes and the environments surrounding. By opening myself to question, I hope to navigate reason and find solutions and answers to my own uncertainties. I primarily work in oil paint, charcoal, or graphite. For my subject matter, I feel these mediums give the best illusion of space, depth, and reality. I hope to continue searching for personal truth through feelings and introspection as long as it is in question.
