"Travelers" 2009

The act of creating provides for me an avenue to explore ideas, people, and especially faith in a context that fosters both mystery and also connection to the subjects. I like to focus on moments - making them more beautiful, more heart-breaking, and more emotionally charged while retaining a certain degree of simplicity. My ideas and projects are usually inspired from photographs I find, then begin to form connections with things I find in literature, religion, or even things I wonder about my self. By the end, my paintings are still mysterious to me and continue to make me think about the very things that inspired them.

onely add
Deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add Faith,
vertue, Patience, Temperance, add Love,
By name to come
call'd Charitie, the soul
Of all the rest: then wilt thou not be loath

To leave this Paradise, but shalt possess
A Paradise within thee, happier farr” (Paradise Lost Book 12: 581-587)
