Artist Statement: About my art:
"My studio practice is rooted in a love of painting and an exploration of the medium. While color is a driving force behind decisions made on the canvas, raw gesture, geometric shapes/forms and pattern play important roles. Representational elements and seemingly unstable architectural structures exist within the abstract atmospheres. Fun, attractive and visually crowded on the surface, ultimately I hope that substance beyond process be discovered and a continued interest to look result. Reoccurring themes in the large-scale canvases are personal narrative, glam, fashion and the embracing of frivolity."
