Artists are visual scientists that show their discoveries through visual representation.

ARTIST STATEMENT

MY WORK IS A STUDY AND EXPLORATION OF RELATIONSHIPS- RELATIONSHIPS WITH NATURE, ENVIRONMENT, PEOPLE, AND WITH OURSELVES. THERE RELATIONSHIPS ARE RARELY ONE-DIMENSIONAL, THUS MY WORK USES A VARIETY OF NON-TRADITIONAL MATERIALS TO EXPRESS THE MULTIPLE FACETS OF EXPERIENCE THROUGH SURFACE, DEPTH AND TEXTURE. I COMMUNICATE  MY EXPERIENCES INTO GESTURAL BRUSHSTROKES, LAYERS OF OVERLAPPING PAINT AND MIXED MEDIA, TRANSLATING MOMENTS FROM MY MEMORY AT EVERY EDGE AND LINE.
