Nice to meet you! I believe art changes everything. It can change a room, a perspective, a life, a culture. Art is meaningful. But I think we often forget that art can be fun.
After a 5 year hiatus from painting to direct a feature film, I have come away with a new perspective on my work as an artist. Art is so personal, and so often that makes artists (like myself) vulnerable to self-doubt, self-correction, and self-critique. Yet after 5 years working on a feature film, I re-discovered what I originally loved about being an artist: the stimulating conversations, the characters I meet, the people I inspire, and the people who inspire me. By giving myself the freedom and space to explore the world outside my studio, I realized that art doesn’t have to be a solo exercise; it can be an exercise in connecting, and that’s what I’m here to do: connect with each and every one of you.
My mission as an artist is to spark more meaning, more color, and more joy in peoples’ lives through my painting, sketching, and documentary films. I hope you can share my mission and join me on this exciting new journey!
