I wrote "I want to create beauty in the world through my artwork." This is a piece of my work. While painting I do not work from a sketch, my paintings are direct thought to canvas. I believe this method transcends the artist and moves an audience on a personal emotional level thus creating connections through ideas. The best way to find peace and beauty is through understanding; for me artwork allows me to effectively communicate who I am and what I believe to the world. It is my form of peace + beauty.
