My practice predominantly involves oil paintings capturing mood through figurative portraiture. I consider my relationship to art with personal and cultural significance, referencing photographs from
life. Heavily influenced by cinema, I also create character portraits based off film stills indicative of emotional velocity. Painting facilitates an ability to venture into catharsis; where my focus is embedded in reflecting vulnerability. Portraiture tends to best encounter this for me, my intrigue into individuals in life or film whose expression echoes a need for empathetic eyes.
