My artwork is a visual representation of my life experiences, thoughts, and memories. My realistic paintings are more than just copies of what I see. I seek to find the wonder and beauty in everyday objects. My still life subjects are often things that were found in my childhood or in the simple pleasures of life. I enjoy adding a bit of dramatic flair to those objects through the use of dramatic lighting, size, and visual texture. It is my hope that my work makes viewers feel nostalgic and connect to an object or food that they or a loved one have enjoyed.
