Why this art?
Inspired by the writings of Joseph Campbell, my work explores the transition from old mythologies and traditions to the emerging global mythology. I examine icons throughout the span of human history - from ancient gods to modern media - to uncover universal human archetypes, themes, and truths. These thematic truths remind us that despite our differences, we all experience obstacles and challenges in our lives. They also remind us that these challenges are the very crucibles that forge and develop our character and that we all have the power to rise above our difficulties, no matter what they are.

A huge part of the reason that I create is the outpouring of love that I receive from my fans. Your experiences of my art teach me more every time someone new encounters it. Every time someone discovers the piece that speaks to their soul, I am reminded of why it is I create this art. Thank you for your continued encouragement and inspiration. Seeing how much you love my work is a powerful motivator to continue to create more. I create my art because it needs to be made, because somewhere there is a person who needs to see what it is I'm creating. I believe that if I can inspire and uplift the world one art piece at a time, then it's absolutely worth it. The truth is, I will make this art regardless of your patronage, because it's what I was born to do. Patronage is a way for you to express your appreciation for my art with financial assistance that allows me to make more and better art.
