Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA. Works and lives in Los Angeles, CA.

I strive to illuminate the profound interplay between texture, solitude, vulnerability, and the cosmic connection that binds us to the vastness of the ocean and the universe.

Texture, for me, is a language of emotions. It’s the tactile brushstroke, the roughness of weathered materials, and the smoothness of the untouched canvas that convey the essence of our experiences. It’s through texture that I invite viewers to immerse themselves in the tangible layers of existence, to feel the depth of solitude and vulnerability that defines our human condition.

Solitude, often misconstrued as isolation, is, in fact, a space for introspection and self-discovery. In my work, I seek to capture the quiet moments when we confront our own vulnerabilities, when we acknowledge the fragility of our existence. Solitude becomes a canvas upon which we paint our truest selves, exposing our vulnerabilities as we reach out to the cosmos for connection.

The cosmic and oceanic motifs in my art symbolize the infinite and the eternal. They remind us that, despite our vulnerability and solitude, we are part of something greater. The ocean, with its rhythmic tides, mirrors our emotional ebbs and flows, while the cosmos, with its stars and galaxies, beckons us to explore the boundless possibilities within and beyond ourselves.

Through my art, I hope to evoke a sense of wonder and contemplation, inviting viewers to embark on their own inner journeys. It is my belief that in embracing our vulnerability and seeking connection with the cosmic ocean of existence, we find not only solace but also the profound realization that, like stars in the night sky, we are all connected, and our vulnerabilities are the threads that weave the tapestry of the human experience.
