Statement

I always put myself in the situation to make the subject matter more personal to me, so my work gives an intimate and personal account of my own experiences, while simultaneously encouraging the viewer to recall their own. My work is symbolic and conceptual. I present subject matter outside the self from this psychological position. I am constantly trying to replace the figures in my paintings with images that represent the idea of the figure, an object or an animal that takes on the persona of what the figure represents. This intimate gesture allows for a personal connection to be forged by the viewer with the work. Ultimately, there is no definitive subject, but only a meditation on personal experience and emotion. The subject matter that influences and inspires my work the most comes from psychology and nature. The ways people deal with situations are very different from one another, and I find this very special and interesting. I challenge myself through drawing, solving problems and difficult ideas. I work digitally and traditionally as well as three dimensionally. I like to experiment with different techniques and mediums. Most of my work is mixed media using ink, watercolor, gouache, and acrylic. The color of my work is very subtle, and quiet.
