Artist Statement

To inspire through my emotion, connection and imagination

Children are visceral.  They touch, smell, taste with great emotions and they see the world through these emotions. They explore, dream up and experience things on a deeper level, they dive in to this world with no hesitation, and create from a place of purity.

Emotions, and imagination are the driving force that causes me to create the art in which I do. To explore with my pallet knife or a new wedge tool is what keeps me painting.  The ideas inside me are limitless and like children I want to explore from the space of my emotional being. I want to feel,revel and dance in my emotions and express them through my art so that I can connect to those around me and have them be in wonder and mystery about the world as I am.
