About

My works are examples of the near infinite palate of human experience. I hope to show the rich vibrancy of shared culture that has been such an important part of my life.

I portray the diversity, beauty, character, vitality and emotions of people in narrative portraits. I try to draw the viewer in with form, colour and expressions.
