All of us humans have a story. We are wacky, wonderful, wounded creatures, beautiful in our imperfection, courageous in our vulnerability. Our outsides often don't reflect our journeys, our stories, our painful or ugly parts. Through my expressive portrait and distorted figurative paintings, I strive to cut through the "pretty" exterior we like to show to the world and bring the inside out: I don’t do pretty, staged Instagram stuff. We may be whimsical and fun, might be dark and frightening, but we are always more interesting than what sits on the surface. Here, I hope to tell these stories through my sketches and paintings and write about just WTH I was thinking as I made them. You can see more of my art here.
