Through an application of paint with an element of the accidental, I seek out the organic shapes that emerge. I highlight the “individual” in a composition of many. The focus, for me, is on inner-connectivity. I take a lead from the forms found in nature and how they are woven together to paint a picture.
I also draw inspiration from urban living, the energy it emits, the technicolor background and the integration of people and passions. I feel compelled to connect the dots, unite, spell out the unseen relationships that ties us all together. I do that through art.
My works are abstract, oils on canvas. Emotion is defined through color, and it’s varying combinations. Texture is the exuberance in which each piece is tackled. My aim is to take the viewer on a visual journey. One where they find themselves lost in the canvas
