I am a self-taught, contemporary realist artist with an interest in nature and fantasy as well as celebrating the beauty in now. My focus in my art is to create paintings that capture a feeling that can be understood even despite the passage of time. While a lot of my recent works are portraits of pets and family moments, my passion is fantasy and surrealism and I’d like to continue my artistic journey in the direction of dark yet colorful creations of a non-earth realm.

While I paint on any surface, I mainly work on stretched canvas or panels with oil paints since I value the archival properties. I accept commissions of all kinds but I have a specialty for animal family members.
