Region: Pacific Coast

My work is focused on portraiture and on intimacy between loved ones and objects. I want to show the tenderness that can be experienced in this world through selective simplicity and tiny details. With our current sociopolitical climate, I think it is important to recognize these often-unnoticed moments in our daily lives, and to remember that they exist. My paintings help me to move forward openly, by presenting what is good in our world.
