artist statement

Every inch of my being is empty without art. In the twinkling of an eye my silent voice begins to spill out into the open air. It is a journey that is filled with uncertainty. Never knowing what the future holds but always wondering if I am going down the right path. My work reflects my life's journey. I'm reaching out to grab something meaningful but always searching for that moment I once lost. Every gesture is a self reflection of who I have become. I hide my emotions deep within like secrets until I release them onto the canvas.
My work comes from a creative mind set. I enjoy thinking of things in abstract ways and connecting my ideas together like a puzzle. My work conveys that through texture, shapes, and spatial depth. I make my paintings complex and expressive. I release all of my emotions onto the canvas/paper with visual movement through mark making and bold colors. When I’m in the active world of creation I find the process of art making stress free and uplifting. That is what I hope to reflect in my paintings.
