My desire to explore the human experience via the metaphor of landscape led me to include figures within nature. I hope that the viewer reads these as metaphysical senses of place. The natural landscape serves as a backdrop to moments of human action, but the emotions conveyed tap into grand, universal themes. I aim to make these events “feel” as real as possible through an attention to detail in hopes that they overwhelm the viewer. In an age where photographs are so readily available. I lend importance to the image by the meditative act of rendering it in paint. After conceiving an idea for a painting I undertake vigorous photo shoots and cull through dozens of reference photos before I start to paint.

I look to my painting heroes and often borrow or adapt gestures, scenes, and compositions to have deep conversations with art history. I cast my models as archetypes and they often in some way have lived these roles. The paintings portray facets of the universal human condition such as loss, doubt, wisdom, and faith as to enlighten and remind viewers of their own humanity. On reflection, I realize that these cinematic paintings depict people facing the most elemental conflict in nature—life and death—and they ask more questions than they answer.
