Artistic Statement
To me, art is a way of expressing something in two dimensions that normally would be taken for granted by others in life. I love capturing the emotional essence of that moment in time. As I pursue my passion, I hope to capture those precious moments with the magic of a paintbrush or a stick of charcoal by utilizing light, contrast, value and color onto the paper or canvas. My ultimate goal is to take something ordinary and make it something magical and emotional to the viewer.

The ability to accomplish this task is never ending as I continue to seek improvement along my artistic journey. I strive to be the best that I can be with continued learning and experimenting with technique.
