Artist’s Statement
I have been fascinated by the charm and visionary power of fantasy since childhood. As a result, my primary intent as an artist is to develop visual narratives that are steeped in my personal style of imaginative realism. Inspired by the mindscapes of J.R. Tolkien and Terry Goodkind, I create artwork that belongs to an immersive fantasy world. Each piece adds context to those before it, and imbues my body of work with relatable characters and depth.

Currently, my illustrative works are centered in collage that deliberately attempts to highlight the common themes of the human condition; The struggle against hopelessness, the loss of religion and the perseverance of faith, as well as the enduring quest for the meaning of life. I explore these themes by infusing my work with allegorical and symbolic content, saturating the image in layers of meaning while simultaneously seeking to evoke an immediate emotional or subjective response.
