STATEMENT Art in it's truest form shows the person making it their beauty and relation to the moment. Art lets us be aware in the creation. When we share art with others it becomes electric. Art promotes our basic instinctual element to be playful and become one with our surroundings. I approach my art with a vigorous free flow. I work on several at a time. I am interested in how physical objects, poetic abstract forms and emotion spaces communicate making visual corridors. My inspiration comes from the process. In all my art: painting, sculpture, drawing and assemblage, I hope to convey a sincere and instinctive sight. I like to make colorful oil painting abstractions. Images of people and landscapes present themselves, become characters and starting reference points to complex narratives and visual questions. I am interested in creating a visual language, answering the notion of what is and what is not. The themes of my paintings range from beauty, music, catharsis, social injustice, community, dreams, nature and time. I hope you enjoy.
