My work often reflects that of emotion, combining a sadness with tranquility. My work falls under expressionistic, abstract and surrealism. Although my paintings tend to be colorful, the subject matter may be that of thoughfulness and uncertainty. My photos tend to capture real-life reportage, often evoking wonders about that person's life story. As a teacher, encouraging students to take creative actions strengthens decision making skills and promotes self-esteem and leadership.
