“Song of the Selkie” (selected pieces), Personal Work (selected pieces)

I have always admired creative work that expresses the essence of a subject in the most natural and effortless way.
Growing up surfing through New England’s shifting seasons offered a profound source of creative inspiration. The transitional character of waves displays an incredible visual arc; summer’s faded pastel waters evoke a gentle and warm quality, fall’s retreating light becomes a temperamental collage, and winter’s harsh, contrasting palette carries heavy textures.
This relationship drove me to capture movement and molded an attention to difficult textures and detail. After a decade living in Brooklyn, my artistic direction has grown out of figure drawing (both posed figures and portraiture) and subway sketching. As a New Yorker, the city's diverse ancestry is a joy to capture.
