My work reanimates historical painting genres, forming a bridge to the present with fresh insight and imagery. The worlds I paint are inhabited by figures, folklore, archetypes, and natural elements that are fueled by a sense of personal as well as universal myth. Subjects are reinterpreted in lush and magical environments that form the nexus between reality and fantasy, expressed through an unconscious world of symbolic imagery.
