About the Artist
"To me, art is a form of communication; a way to communicate ideas or express feelings that cannot be accurately portrayed via verbal or written form. It is a way to invoke deeper thought into the subject at hand, a deeper feeling that words cannot allow.
I enjoy employing a broad diversity of media across my work, as I feel limiting myself to a few would be to limit the extent of my expression. There are certain feelings that are better portrayed with specific media: the whimsicality of watercolor, the rawness of charcoal, and the intensity of pastels.
My work often reflects my love for the cosmos; for both nature and outer space. I always aim to connect the viewer with a broader picture: the beauty, fragility, and infinitesimal reality of existing on Earth. I emphasize my ideas to the viewer through the use of subject matter that can be interpreted symbolically. The concept of duality often surfaces in my work, as it is one that fascinates me. Positive and negative, light and dark: this theme can be found everywhere throughout nature. Our cosmos exists in this balance of duality, and my work reflects that as well.”
When I’m not creating art, writing, or reading, I enjoy cuddling with my amazing cat, stargazing, and hiking the beautiful woods of upstate NY.
