I make art because it’s a fluid part of me. It’s natural. Through practicing art I find it helps me come full circle with emotion, memory and ideas that are reflected into me.
Current pieces are pulled from memories of family and growing up. I’ve been really interested in the dynamic of sacrifice and acceptance. I relate it to my large, close nit family and the delicate way they seem to exist in a time when many people opt for the small family unit. I love great stories and traditions.
Visually, my work is a combination of realism and abstraction. I like to be physically involved with it but also commit myself to craft and skill. My process is rooted in image association, muscle memory, impulse, and intuition. I also commit myself to keeping practice and learning from experience.
