ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I'm inspired by the energy created when contrast and composition are properly combined. The buzz that is generated when contrasting colors or tones meet is almost tangible.

Most of my work takes cues from nature in one way or another.

My simpler work reflects my days of calm and peace. Exploiting the quiet, beautiful contrast between color and texture of my substrate makes the work come alive in subtle ways. On the other hand, my busier pieces reflect my drive and anxiety. In this vein of work, I push to create pieces that are just as busy as my thoughts. I find a sense of calm and purpose when in both veins of work. I hope that you too can relate to and appreciate the place from which my art is created.
