Artist Statement:

Creativity to me…is growing, experimenting, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, getting lost and coming back.

I have always loved art, the passion to create art, and the trials and errors involved. My earliest work had hung proudly on refrigerator doors as a child, bedroom walls as a teen, and in many art classes.  Inspired by artists of many different genres that use simple yet impactful imagery I am continuously developing my own style which is ever evolving and reinvented sometimes with each new piece.  I try to keep it interesting and convey that inspiration in my own work.  l don’t compartmentalize my work and don’t always know what the end result will be when I start a piece of work .  Continually thinking from conception thru execution, making changes, sometimes starting over is common practice for me from conception thru execution, finally reaching that point on a piece that I am proud to sign my name.

My main mediums are gesso (close friend), acrylic, charcoal, and pastel. I have a very abstract and contemporary approach to all my work on canvas or wood.  I work with large brushes and palette knives in a very gestural and quick manner.  My work reflects a bold use of color, black and white.  Giving a viewer, admirer, and collector a strong emotional impact is my main purpose.
