Statement

My artwork was influenced in the early stages of my painting career by the graphic and bold work by Robert Motherwell and the wonderful color and textures of Paul Klee.
As I developed my own style and voice I started combining several mediums including acrylic, oil pastel, paper and ink.
I start each painting with color, line and texture and allow the markings to follow their own story. Rearranging, adding and subtracting layer by layer.
The process mirrors how I experience life, bit by bit, day by day, adding up to something I could not have imagined in the beginning of the process.
The painting process also allows me to express emotions, allows for improvisation and taps into a place I cannot arrive in any other way. This is the gift God has given me, the ability to share that experience with the viewer.
