 “My work is an exploration of human experience and emotion,
through storytelling and the outward manifestation of that which is often kept internal. I am interested in expressing emotional content as well as ideas of isolation, manhood, and the romanticization of violence in our culture. These themes appear in my artwork through  gurative representation, exploring the inner workings of humanity by display-
ing it outwardly. The imagery
is often distorted and symbolic rather than that of strict realism or visual likeness, using loose marks and obscurity to express a sense of the psyche. Most
of the work is self-portraiture or personal friends in order to give an intimate look into the individual’s perceived experi- ence, as well as share my own self-examination and search for self-knowledge.”
