My art is intuitive. I usually need something to trigger my imagination. I will look around me for something that clicks in me, and then build my images on that. What I see serves as a point of departure for the works that ensue.
I use my art to express what I feel and understand about myself, my life,the people in my life, and in my surroundings. My work reflects my emotional attachments, and the content of my daily experiences. All through my early work there are common subjects that are repeated in various ways.
I prefer design over representation in all of my art.I have a passion for design and in my work I tend to favor pattern along with color and line.I am interested in nature as I observe it personally and as a resource. As for technique, I lean towards organic methods. Drawing and painting subjects from nature enriches my abilities, and keeps me aware of the organic nature of art.When I paint people as my subject it is with with an interest in their psychology and character.Recently I am incorporating the use of computers in my work by scanning my small sketches, and then refining and experimenting with them until I have a work with potential.I also draw and paint on the computer.The opportunities for expression through the use of computers are phenomenal and I hope to make use of their creative potential.
