About

My artwork is a reflection of my life experiences and encounters.  The travels I make to various countries and the observations I make along my journey find their way into my paintings.  I find inspiration in the cultural traditions of every location I find myself painting in.  Through my paintings, I aim to capture the desires, philosophies, and myths of various cultures in past, present, and future societies.
