Through the creative process I am able to explore both external components of life as well as the inner workings of my own psyche. I am fascinated with the magic and mystery of what we do not yet understand as well as the complete beauty of what is already proven and tangible. Like many, I am also consumed by the world of pop culture and with my having an education in traditional illustration, I love to create narrative works inspired by some of my favorite genres of movies, books, and folklore. These stories are often shrouded in the supernatural and darker parts of one's imagination. Bringing elements of these worlds together in my work helps me share a bit of myself with the viewer and hope I connect to something inside of them.
