“I paint people because I find them overflowing with narrative. I am documenting time, place, society and how these people fit into it – or at least my interpretation of that. We can all relate to life’s struggles, simple pleasures and emotions. My paintings are a way for me to share my perspective of these facets of life. I paint people as I see them, flaws and all. My paintings are not meant to be flattering; my intention is not to please the subject and make a commission, but to create a piece of art.”
