- 8” x 8” Original Acrylic Painting on thick stretched canvas
- Coated with a UV Protective Varnish
“Citrus Paradise” is a series of acrylic paintings that celebrate the Floridian paradise in a weird and fantastical way. Rather than the typical realistic depictions of our tropical landscape through bodies of water and native animals, I chose to represent my home state in a more unusual and novel way. The vibrant vegetation in the painting take on an otherworldly, dreamlike presence.
I am extremely meticulous in my paintings, which is evident from the super crisp, clean lines and edges. I want my paintings to appear almost-digitally created even though they are done entirely by hand without the aid of tape or stencils. Color is also such a guiding force in my work, and this painting is no exception. The striking opaque colors are achieved through several coats of paint - because of this and my meticulous nature, my paintings take quite a long time.
All paintings are little pieces of me. I am so passionate about what I do, and every piece shows this. Thank you for supporting my humble little dream and buying original art!

With a background in Neuroscience, the hidden physiology of the body continues to inspire my work. My paintings merge science with art by re-presenting anatomy through stylized forms and hyper-saturated colors. These larger-than-life paintings expose the inner systems and confront viewers with what it means to be a living body within the context of our current health care system.
I maintain laboratory-like precision through a graphic, hard-edge style. The technical aspects and the process of creating these forms without the aid of tape or stencils are just as important as the content.
