Combining photography, painting, and drawing, using a poet's methods of building meaning, I have begun exploring a new style of art portraiture in my studio in Raleigh, North Carolina.
When I am creating a portrait, it is with the aim of inspiring both myself and my model, while building an image of what I see as the beauty inside a person.
Without my models, I would not be able to make my art. My journey is just beginning, and I'd love for you to become a part of it.

I work closely with my models to create images that reflect who they are on the inside, and that explore what it means to be human and alive. This image was created by a process I call "painting with the ocean", where I literally hold my paintings under the spray of a wave.
