"I am a figurative painter exploring individuals from different cultural backgrounds, personalities, and genders through symbolism and narrative. My paintings demonstrate a contrast between realism and expressionism, from thick textured paint to smooth delicate painting, allowing the viewers to feel the presence of the sitter. We all think of ourselves as icons in some shape or form, especially in the time of smartphones and social media. We live in the era of instant image. We feel like we want to look like a certain celebrity, by taking selfies and constantly posting them on social media. But when do we appreciate our own selves, who we are as individuals? My work develops a sense of time in the image, a unique continuity of time, place and personality that is lost in instant media."
