I am focused on color and its influence upon the viewer, its ability to invoke a mood or a memory. I have found myself in abstract art because of its ability to hold multiple meanings; because it doesn’t represent literal objects, the piece itself is receptive to the emotions of each individual viewer. My art is a meditation and an expression of my inner world – both private and open to the viewer as a balance of colors. It is elemental and invites the audience to lean in an explore its tactile surface, while re-imagining its meaning though their own experiences.
I am an intuitive artist and a bit of a dreamer, but I am also a firm believer in hard work and structure. I rarely ever wait for the muse to strike, but instead I try to keep painting, letting myself come up with a great composition and a favorite work through the creative process itself. Inspiration comes from the love of painting!
Highly influenced by the work of impressionists and post-impressionists like Monet and Van Gogh, my paintings carry a similar love of color and light, of the passing of the seasons and the transient, yet eternal, beauty of nature. The canvases are intimate revelations, but at the same time they allow the audience to follow its own spiritual journey through the influence of the color palettes.
