My journey as an artist began with my first crayon. I have always been in love
with color. Over the years I've developed a passion for lines, forms, space, and the spaces between . Be it paint, inks, dyes, or watercolors, each media excites me.
I experiment in diverse styles, allowing the subject, materials, and concepts, to influence the final outcome.
My work is often a fusion of opposites -- chance and deliberation; remnants of the past link to the present; fluid pools of color, allowed to drip and layer and develop alongside the thick, structural impasto effects.
For me, art is a necessity; a surrendering, a discovery, and a celebration.
It transforms thoughts and ideals into dimensional realities beyond the flat surface. The interior process of abstraction suspends me from isolation, and connects me with my most authentic self,as well as the rest of humanity.
