Painting is the way I represent feelings in a visual form.
I am interested in understanding the hidden effect that an experience has on someone. Personal reactions to events both personal and global. Engaging in the process of painting is to unearth and record unspoken thoughts as a tangible representation of understanding life.
The layers I create represent buried engagements in a tactile way. Each piece is built with coats of paint, mark making with pencils, chalk pastels, pens and texture using paper scraps. I work on several pieces at the same time so a dialog is created, a conversation happening between the paintings that serve to create a story and allow thoughts to coalesce.
Making art, and especially abstract art, gives me a voice and the freedom to be intuitive, gain self-awareness, have insights, and observe external perceptions without being literal but rather lyrical. My work continually evolves and every piece is a personal time stamp of emotional evolution.
