Art, a universal way of communication, is my means of communication with the world. This communication is done with an exaggerated photorealistic style which focuses on the intensity of color. As an artist, I take pleasure in capturing everyday objects from our world and enlarging them using vast proportional sizes. It is in this magnification that their genuine characteristics are accentuated. I am inclined to work with these objects because all people can make meaningful connections with these simple, yet complex images.
