Artist Statement
I always want my work to be beautiful; it should evoke happiness and a sense of calm or serve as a reminder of life’s goodness. Our lives are not perfect, so I never strive to create the perfect painting. I strive to create a perfectly imperfect balance of colors, shapes and lines with and unexpected twist that marries the elements to produce a snapshot of life. I use a variety of paints and mark-making tools such as oil sticks, graphite, and charcoal pencils to produce delicate, emotive, and subtle pieces of art. My works essentially becomes a living journal of my life, with each creation serving as a chapter to document my inspiration, feelings, and daily musings. I draw heavy influence from nature’s delicate hand. I often look internally to my emotional reaction to life’s changes and use those directions as a guide for influencing my work. Creating fluid and sketchy brush strokes, coupled with the spontaneity of emotional mark-making, produce a beautiful silhouette of a moment in time.
