Artist Statement

I present to you an exhibition of narrative artworks. The stories in the artworks shown here are inspired by many areas of life. Religion, history, culture, and current events to name a few. They can represent an idea, such as a belief, freedom, and encouragement. Narrative art is meant to teach, inspire, inform, and even to preserve memories and culture. It can be a way to understand the experiences of people from various places and times. Take time to explore the paintings.
