Art making is a therapeutic process in which I am able to find release through color exploration and mark making.
I absorb each moment, and I release the experience and it's repercussions through art- telling stories via a layering of experience with the work. Bodies of work develop naturally through the meditative process of creating. I work on up to 30 paintings at a time, allowing each one to evolve, to take and give back. Themes evolve over time, revealing themselves organically.
Sometimes I can not easily define what a piece is 'about' until several months or years later when I can take a step back from myself, and objectively analyze the works.
I find it interesting that some pieces affect people in completely opposite ways. A work can be sad and lonely or calm and tranquil, energetic and lively or traumatic and disturbing.
There is no solid line in art. It is a fleeting representation of our time, and ourselves.
