    About the artist

    Through an additive and reductive process, I create large, ambitious drawings on canvas by layering charcoal and gesso. The unique application and texture cause the viewer to closely examine the work, inevitably drawing attention to the content. The scale and palette are metaphors to my subject matter. The issues pertaining to the LGBTQ community are daunting. By working large in scale the issues can no longer be ignored. In an attempt to expose the gray area to those that view the world in black and white, I wish to elicit empathy and compassion. Regardless of our differences, we are all human.I create art for a social change.
