Burlington, KY, United States

I am a Fine Arts Major at Thomas More College, fascinated with the surreal and the spiritual. I enjoy working with oil when painting and charcoal when drawing. Spring semester of 2015 I created a series called We Are The Universe and had so many realizations by the end of it that it was positively overwhelming. I started out just trying to incorporate human emotions with outer space and I ended up with a body of work that presented aspects of human life and one's choices. Stepping back from this I saw my soul drenched all over the canvases for the first time in my life and it blew me away. After the completion of We Are The Universe I decided I would educate and positively influence those around me with my mind with the help of my paintbrush. There is a lot of wrong with this world, but there's sure a whole lot of good and people need to know about both. I hope to bring issues to the table that need to be acknowledged along with enlightening people with positivity and encouragement.
