“I am endlessly inspired by early Catholic art. As an outsider to religious practice, I bring a unique perspective to my work. This distance allows me to approach the subject matter with a sense of curiosity and openness, unencumbered by the weight of tradition. Through my paintings, I seek to foster a dialogue that transcends religious boundaries and speaks to the universal aspects of human introspection and yearning in a fresh and unconventional light. My oil paintings serve as a bridge between the sacred and the contemporary. I enjoy blending traditional religious iconography with elements of pop art and surrealism. Through this fusion, I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and contemplation, inviting viewers to explore the intersections of faith, mythology, and the complexities of the human experience.”
