Inspired by the technical painting skills of Caravaggio, Gerome, and Rockwell, while borrowing modern fashion photography ideals, I create paintings that speak to my awkward nature and my own personal narrative. Mainly an oil painter, I prefer the unnatural views of the form with a heavy dose of mystery, as I feel this best represents me and my story.
As the great Oscar Wilde said, “Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not the sitter... It is not they who the painter reveals; it is rather the painter who, on the colored canvas, reveals themself.” So, how much more must be revealed if I paint a self-portrait?
