Artist Statement
Painting is my visual journal--an exploration of emotions and ideas where my subconscious takes over and a story unfolds.

In my large paintings I use sweeping gestures and broad brushstrokes to apply layers of paint and often wash away or scrape areas of the canvas. Textures and veils of color reflect the movement of my mind as the artwork evolves.

My smaller paintings pull me into a meditative space. Strokes of paint and ink result in translucent washes; subtle shapes emerge often with bold graphite accents. The small size of the artwork invites the viewer to step in towards the paintings and reflect on the emotive qualities of the marks.
