Samples of my work
My work is a commentary of my experiences with wildlife and from witnessing environmental and civil right issues through volunteerism. I am deeply concerned about the condition we are leaving our planet in and the social persecution people are fleeing from because of religious beliefs, sexual orientation and gender inequality. I don’t set out to make a political statement in my artwork, I only want to document my thoughts and hope they will move people into action or stimulate meaningful conversation. Each study I develop consists of a series of themes, ranging from a variety of subjects. I sketch my studies on my iPad and then fine tune them on paper. Once my images are realized, I paint them on canvas with acrylics and mix them with various mediums to give my paintings the texture and elements they need to resemble the wild feel of nature and the world I see around me.
