Artist Statement

“Art is the extended arm of your imagination; the feast of inspiration for your muse. Art isn’t just creativity, it’s a way of life.” Sarah Curran

My artistic journey is one that explores the many facets of human experience, where each piece is a reflection of a story, an emotion, or a moment captured in time. I am inspired by and I enjoy focusing on the quiet beauty of everyday objects. Through meticulous attention to detail and composition, I enjoy transforming the mundane into the extraordinary, creating pieces that are meditative studies of light, color, and atmosphere, evoking a sense of peace and tranquility while encouraging viewers to find wonder in the simplicity of life. Through a lifelong exploration of portraits, concept art, figures, landscapes, and still lifes, my work has become a tapestry of complex imagery and objects woven together as my artistic voice.

I enjoy delving into the essence of identity and character and attempting to encapsulate the unique spirits of people, revealing stories etched into their expressions and postures. By capturing the dynamism and grace of the human body, I celebrate its inherent beauty. As I strive to portray both the strength and vulnerability inherent in the human condition, my most recent series, “Double Consciousness,” is infused with symbolic elements and imaginative explanatory scenarios as a means of personal self-expression and communication through art. These works challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface, engaging with themes of transformation, resilience, and the interplay between the natural and the spiritual.

Across all my work, I am driven by a desire to connect with the viewer on an emotional level, to provoke thought, and to inspire a deeper appreciation of the world around us. My art is an invitation to pause, reflect, and engage with the myriad stories that shape our lives.

“The man who arrives at the doors of artistic creation with none of the madness of the Muses would be convinced that technical ability alone was enough to make an artist… what that man creates by means of reason will pale before the art of inspired beings.” Plato
