STATEMENT

In the vivid tapestry of my artistic journey, I find profound inspiration in the kaleidoscope of colors that nature generously unfolds before our eyes. Experiencing color, for me, is not merely a basic visual experience. Rather a conversation, in which each hue blesses me with a unique feeling and conversation. Composing a dynamic partnerships of specific hues, bonded with intentional compositions and subject matter, I create a symbiotic relationship of visual expression that comes to life in the pigments and wood panels they inhabit. My artistic intention revolves around capturing the essence of natures’ divine beauty and bringing appreciation to the often overlooked, and under appreciated organisms in this world. 

 

As a young boy, I have always been captivated by the vast microcosms that exist all around us and the dramatic sagas that unfold within them. As this body I inhabit grows older, my fascination for this has grown increasingly intense. Harnessing this interest operates as my muse and aids in fueling my passion for art. The intense joy and appreciation I gain from these experiences inspire me to share it with others. Painting has been the most potent and exuberant method I have found thus far to nurture this desire. Nevertheless, creating visual art and rhythmic sounds through my drumming have been my spiritual calling ever since I had my earliest conscious thoughts. 

 

From the lush green canopies of dense forests to the mossy jungles in our backyard lawns, I strive to convey the awe-inspiring beauty that surrounds us. Through my artwork, I invite viewers to immerse themselves in the uplifting energy of nature, fostering a connection that transcends the visual pigments that lay before them. My aim is to share not only the visual splendor of nature but also the emotional resonance it can evoke within all of us. In a world often marked by many distractions, my sincere hope is that my art becomes a source of joy and inspiration, offering a reminder of the enduring beauty that exists in everything. Through my vibrant creations, I aspire to foster a sense of connection, appreciation, and delight in you.
