Artist Statement

Have you ever looked at and seen beauty in something so mundane? A puddle on the street, a reflection in a metal cup,

the color shifts in one’s eyes? I find these beautifully mundane moments everywhere I go, and I love to recreate them with a brush.

Changing the hue to represent an object’s shadow, using varying strokes to imply patterns, applying transitional shades

for a seamless blend - as an artist, I use these techniques to bring out the beauty in the mundane.

These small details are what transform something from dull to vibrant, flat to dimensional, and ordinary to exciting.
