Artist StatementI am passionately exploring techniques in charcoal pencil and color media. Creating both a likeness and story in my portraits. I am using my art to also explore connections to those around me as well as using self reflection to curate subjects and themes.
I am currently working in a mix of media. Mainly using charcoal to render the likeness of my subject. I add color with paints and inks to build a base and add layers to the finished work. Creating a greater sense of depth and a unique combination of realism, action painting, and pop art. I am influenced by an avid interest in art history and pop culture. I am exploring personal connections and experiences in the themes of my work.
