I am eleven years into my Los Angeles experience, migrating here from the Southwest, by way of a Masters Degree in Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute. I am using this great and diverse metropolis to influence my work.
What you see on this site are my interpretations of how I feel about the human experience — a fragile precipice upon which are delicately balanced opposing forces of all kinds. I hope you enjoy discerning these precarious balances as much as i try to strike a balance between these forces. You might find though, my suspicion that some forces are stronger than others.

I enter the unknown with each new piece of art to honor the fragility of human existence. My work at first might seem too aggressive, but take a closer look and there is optimism too - optimism of being alive in our own complex state of being.
Showing the underlying processes of the human body is in invigorating practice. It makes me feel more connected to our humanness, yet this also creates alienation and anxiety. We are in a fragile state, we spin around the earth rapidly and don't feel it, while the earth revolves around the sun, creating the seasons. And we are all just indifferent specs in this whole cosmos.
One part of my art that is always optimistic though, is how I create every painting: with a lot of preparation, a lot of discipline and determination, and beautiful painting techniques.
My ultimate goal is to move you and make you think differently about your own composition.
