Art, to me, is about connection... a connection to oneself, a connection to others, a connection to Mother Earth, a connection to the Universe.

In my work, you can find yourself experiencing the awe of nature or the feeling of floating through another planet. While living on our world, there are other worlds we occupy in the depths of our conscious and subconscious. Dreams influence my paintings, and in my dreams, I've flown through these worlds and danced as if I was levitating in the clouds.

In some of my creations, you may find yourself standing on a shore in Hawaii, smelling the salty air and feeling the sun on your face. In others, you can be floating through a nebula in outer space and feeling what it would be like to be wrapped in indigo.

In the end, through my artistic explorations, my hope is for you to connect to yourself and know you are part of something bigger.
