I paint to immortalize and elaborate upon the otherwise fleeting details of everyday life. I capture these microscopic triumphs and tragedies on canvas to give them the recognition that I feel they deserve. The resulting paintings transcend my own existence to act as a catalyst for the viewing audience, stepping-stones for conversation, nostalgia, and comparison amongst strangers.
