Artist Statement

I’m fascinated by art’s ability to communicate without words, through compelling, silent but expressive images. I’m intrigued by the way that two-dimensional representational drawing and painting can create the illusion of palpable, three-dimensional forms. I have been studying at The Princeton Academy of Art since June 2016. I’m grateful for the thoughtful and inspiring guidance of my teachers, Anna Neis and Iliya Mirochnik.
