My Artistic Style

I love making art with soul—Whether that be painting the way that light reflects on skin or capturing the flecks of color in someone’s eye, it’s all about the details in order to paint the essence of a person.

I combine classical techniques and ideology from artists like Artemisia Gentileschi and Diego Velasquez and throw in my own take on contemporary realism to achieve a truly unique style.
