ARTIST STATEMENT:

I am interested in the emotive impact of color. I attempt to explore this emotive impact through strong color as it relates to abstracted natural forms.

To me, my work conveys the urgency in acting on ones own emotions. These internal feelings spring from outside stimuli and are acted out aggressively. Since I am a private person, I feel my work speaks visually of my personality in ways that I choose not to speak verbally. It explores the depth of my soul and mind. When I work on these images, the universality of the range of primal emotions alive in every individual is explored on a grand scale and for this reason I feel they are objects to which every person can relate in one way or another. My intention is to translate the beauty of the human experience through the images I produce, not by simply explaining but by evoking.
