Hope and despair come together to create many of the best moments within our lives, from our first kiss to our last hurrah. My work is about the great things that can happen when there is hope within desperate situations.

Personal memories and observations are my springboard to create narratives about the common moments we all have. To portray these experiences, I use objects as stand-ins for the figures. I consider myself a figurative painter that never paints the human form.
