Artist Statement

I have always been fascinated by stories. A good story has always been what has prompted me to create. I always enjoy a good plot but what always keeps my focus are the characters in those narratives, to see situations from a different point of view and lose oneself in the mind of another. My work always focuses on a character and expressing that character through illustration. Whether the art piece is a painting, a drawing or a digitally created image I am always focused on a subject.

I have firmly believed that a good narrative needs good characters; each of my art pieces represents a character in some manner. I will always be focused on expressing a story and especially the characters in that story whether or not the story is mine own creation or someone else’s.
