With my use of abstract figurative portraits, I want my audience to understand the importance of stillness while our world is still in movement. My work takes a look at culture, and life experiences with an array of messages relating to the current times I’m in, self-growth, motivation, and healing. Closed eyes represent some of our most sacred times such as rest, and prayer and when our eyes are open they are what I imagine as the portal to the soul of the portrait.
