Artist Statement:

As an artist, my goal is to evoke emotion and arouse the subconscious mind in the viewer through my paintings. I believe in magic and that everything in our world gives, holds, and receives an invisible energy. Our energies bounce off each other like dancing points of light.  I try to catch the magic that is constantly flowing through and around us.  There is so much planning and preparation with my work but when I release myself and am in my element, it is as if the painting is just happening, revealing itself to me.  It is magical and my work attempts to capture these moments.  

My inanimate object portraits, such as those of telephone poles, can offer a unique perspective on the objects that often go unnoticed in our daily lives. These paintings can highlight the aesthetic qualities and functional significance of the telephone poles, drawing attention to their role in communication and connecting people. The intimacy in these portraits can also give a personal touch to the otherwise mundane objects, making the viewer consider their own relationship with the subject matter. Through the lens of art, these telephone pole portraits can offer a deeper appreciation for the infrastructure that often goes unseen but is vital to our daily lives. 

Through my abstract paintings, I create a dialogue about that energy using an acrylic pour technique. I love the push and pull between rough and smooth, light and dark, and the vibration held in the spaces between.  I am trying to show the unseen and peel back the layers. My hope is for the viewer to see a reflection of their soul in my work.
