Artist Statement

My approach to making work is intuitive and explorative with the goal of creating a piece that speaks with emotion to the viewer. Playing with abstract shapes and high key color, I make art that attempts to comfort.

I love working with the infinite color choices, the additive action: putting down a shape, covering it, altering it with another shape, working, re-working, obsessing, making it better (or worse), adding but rarely subtracting until it feels right. The rough edges and the unfinished, messy bits that result look a lot like real life.
