Artist Statement

I am a self-taught artist who as an adult went back to school to redefine what it was I wanted to accomplish with my art. After experimenting with my art for a while, a life altering event caused a complete shift in the process of how I painted, rather than painting landscapes I began to paint abstracts. Painting abstracts allows me to paint with no boundaries to confine my creativity. As I continue my journey through abstract painting, I find more fascination and freedom to explore and experiment. Some paintings are deliberate and are meant to evoke specific emotions while others are an exploration of technique, color and texture. Many of my paintings are well planned while others are very impromptu. Some of my paintings have included found or collected items which add depth and meaning to combine form and function to my work.
