Artist statement

My work focuses on subcultures and the people who occupy them. I often times choose the subjects for my paintings because they aren’t ever chosen to be recognized elsewhere and that’s what makes them even more important and beautiful. I try to help them be recognized through bold and dramatic colors which force the viewer’s attention. Documenting reality, real places and the real people who occupy them is the main goal of my work. I paint the people I want to surround myself with and feel can tell the most stories which I try and show through their portraits.
