“My desire to capture realism through varied techniques as well as exploring new ideas is my passion. I want the viewer to feel the expression of a persons face, the strength of their personality, and the intensity of their lives. Evoking a pleasant emotional memory and fulfilling the viewer’s senses through my work would be the ultimate accomplishment for me.”
