Artist Statement: I am a self-taught traditional/digital freelance artist currently residing in the United States (New Jersey). I have been working mostly in digital and mixed media for the past eight years and have done covers for both online publications and print graphic novels. I am influenced by the Brandywine School artists (especially Howard Pyle and N.C. Wyeth) and enjoy producing realistic, character-driven art infused with symbolism that will hopefully resonate with the viewer. My submissions for the 2018 Faces of Humanity show are the first two pieces from my series called, Ordinary Saints My goal for these ongoing serial works is to capture the heroic sanctity of ordinary people facing adversity.
