My art is a reportage of thoughts and research. The goal of my immersive pieces is to question morality while including personal narrative. The allegorical questions asked in my work are hidden in the storytelling elements of its visual density. The imagery applied in each composition is diaristic in placement but alludes to the deeper canon of interaction between art historical narrative and religious iconography.
