Artist Statement

My work is a visual exploration of my personal relationships and experiences with people that I am or have been close with, people I have loved, laughed, and cried with. Some of them are gone from my life now, some I feel I have known forever, and some I am just getting to really know. My work records the time spent with my family and friends and preserves the memories of the ones that mean so much to me.
The work shows the more intimate or private aspects of a family member or close friend. I explore what makes them an individual and what makes them beautiful to me. To truly know the identity of an individual is to know their stances, their crooked smiles, their noses, their moles, the way they walk, their body language, and their vulnerabilities. In each piece I literally and symbolically reveal the individual to provide an intimate glimpse of what makes each specific person unique to me. I allow the viewer to engage with my subjects as I do, as if the viewer were looking through my own eyes at the moments shared only between friends.

  1. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
