Artist Statement

The world surrounding us is full of endless opportunities and visions that can unexpectedly captivate my attention and inspiration for a painting at any moment in time, for which I must be prepared.  Whether it’s an object, conversation, or an overwhelming feeling, I immediately collect my ideas and sketches in a notepad.  A sketch is drawn out.  A myriad of possibly changing shades and colors are roughly placed on the canvas. The final colors, textures, and blends make the finishing touches.

Art, for me, is a way I can express challenging feelings that are otherwise hard to approach.  In my work, I hope to create pieces that allow others to do the same as they personally connect with my work from the context of their own lives.

Art, for me, is also I way I can express my creativity in an individual and unique way, simply from the ebb & flow of my own paintbrush, not necessarily in response to any outside influences.

Art, for me, is a chance to challenge myself through my choice of paintings and mediums to pursue my growth as an artist.

Art, for me, is a way that I can create something that sets me apart and leaves behind pieces of my story and me.
