I paint inspiring people and everyday life. Whether painting figures, cityscapes, or landscapes, I strive to capture the beauty I find in familiar people and places. Although my watercolors are realistic in nature, my objective is not to create paintings that look like photographs. Instead, my primary goal is to present a story that is universally relatable yet reserves enough ambiguity to allow the viewer to experience the painting in their own way. My version of realism is rendered through minimal brushstrokes, fluid washes, and pure pigments.
