Someone once said to me “paint like it’s your last time.” That statement has always stayed with me and has helped me grow as an artist. When I approach my work with the understanding that it could be the last painting I’ll ever do, I let go. And in the process of letting go, I find my voice as a painter. My work is very much an extension of myself…it’s a reflection of my perception of the world around me. I use color, form, line and movement to express my vision. There is an energy to my work…it can be subtle or more pronounced, but my intention has always been to create with emotion and produce work that is compelling and interesting to the eye. Abstract expressionism has taught me that creativity goes way beyond what we see and is very much about what we feel and think. As an artist my hope is to speak to myself as well as others about the beauty that exists not only around us but also within us.
