Statement

"As an artist I aim to produce work that reflects both personal and shared human experiences. I am motivated by a desire to explore the interactions of color, texture and movement, create those small unexpected moments and embrace the inherent unpredictability of the creative process.

For the past 20 years my art journey has been one characterized by experimentation and discovery, both in subject and technique. While the majority of my work is non-representational, I often find myself returning to capture of the human form in varying degrees of abstraction. I am intrigued by the way art lends itself to interpretation, and hearing what others see in my work has contributed to its ongoing evolution.

My hope is that the authenticity of this journey is evident in my work, and that through my art I can inspire, uplift and bring joy."
