Artist Statement

I aim to use color and texture to create evocative abstract and representational scenes. I am motivated by exploring the interaction of color through various mediums as well as fantastical scenes from my experiences in the world. My recent focus has been mixing clear resin with various pigments and painting them onto prepared panels in translucent layers. The unpredictable viscosity of the medium combined with its reflective and 3D cured state creates exciting challenges and end results with a unique luster.

I also maintain a regular practice of collage, drawing and painting with acrylic and oil. For me, one of the most exciting and thrilling experiences with art is the application of color and exploring how it evokes my own emotions and experiences.
