elements of abstraction.

I create work based on places, creatures and interesting people.
Painting has been a staple diet, nurturing my connection with the world- a tangible expression of appreciation through creating.
I enjoy being expansive with subjects and experimentation, not limiting my work to the confines a very specific style.
I love collaborating to create specific pieces, feel free to contact me for commissioned artwork.
