My art is a direct reflection of my life. Everything that I see and feel serves as inspiration for my work. Though I have experimented with many different mediums, I am most connected to expression through painting, photography, and video. I am also very interested in how art can change the experience of the space that we occupy and the interactions that we have. I am captivated by the concept of a moment and how to preserve that feeling through visual re-creation. Creativity is my passion, and I believe it has the ability to change everything.
