I’ve always been fascinated by the human figure and the many different ways to depict it. Throughout art school, I found myself constantly abstracting the form and studying body language. After graduating in 2014, I continued this exploration and painted abstracted figures, studying the form and blending figures into each other. This led me to paint couples.
 

After about 3 paintings, I knew I found a subject that I enjoyed and had endless opportunities to explore the figure. 


Now, years later, I’m continuing to focus my work on love and relationships. I’ve not yet found a moment of artist block since I’m constantly inspired. The couples in my paintings are a representation of all couples. It could be you and your lover or your friends or a couples on the street. I paint them without any facial characteristics in order to keep the Jane Doe and John Doe representation alive. 



 

I’ve been lucky to find a subject that I’m passionate about and one that has so many directions to explore. I’m also grateful to have an audience that supports my work. But really, who wouldn’t smile when they see a painting of a couple in love?
