Artist Statement

Painting is a daily practice consisting of oil and acrylic paints, compounds often found in the hardware store and mixed media on canvas or paper.  Vibrant color abstractions and coarse textures create the rich aesthetic of my work.  Layers of color, cracks, drips, and their removal formulate an imperfect structure telling one Artists’ story of love, loss,  perseverance, and hope.

The creative experience is a powerful one as the process of painting keeps me fully immersed in nature, the resonance of the music playing, and in tune with my inner spirit.

I Create For Myself.

My work affords me meaning, authenticity, and purpose.  I consider any form of creativity an act of self love and I advocate for finding passion, self fulfillment, and inner peace through any form of creative expression.
