Inspiration can come in many forms, but I have always let my emotions take the leading 

role in the stories for my paintings.  Sadness, happiness, hopelessness, pain – these deceivingly 

simple feelings have had a strong impact on how I portray my ideas.  Paired with these emotions, 

I have been able to develop ideas from my reactions to things I’ve observed with people, trends, 

and events in society.  With my work, I strive to create a number of different narratives within a 

single frame. Life is complex and strange, and people have individual reactions to the things they 

go through.  My intention is to allow the viewer to use the events in their life as a way to connect 

with the stories of my paintings and, in turn, form a story for themselves.  I want to create 

something that people have questions about – something with a message, but still ambiguous and 

open to the viewer’s own interpretation. Because sometimes I feel like I need to tell a story…and 

words are just not enough.
