Artist Statement

As a contemporary visual artist the foundation of my practice is based on the spontaneity of abstract expressionism. It enables me to express and translate a non-tangible experience into a visual form enabling viewers into my visual world. 

My paintings are inspired by my natural environment, music and experiences are created with acrylic paints and palette knives. I use the fast paced technique of using a palette knife to create textural qualities, expressive gestures, enhance light and movement. 

I also experiment with drawings, mixed media, lithographs, video and installation to complement my painting technique. The execution of my craftsmanship and aesthetics is paramount to my artistic growth & development. 

My mixed media and photo collage pieces represent elements of construction, deconstruction and repetition to create harmoniously balanced images.
