Artist Statement

My work is an exploration in streams of consciousness. By not pre-determining what the final product will be, I practice trusting my own intuition and thought patterns to create works of art. I use a variety of media so there may not always be material similarities throughout my practice but are linked by recurring formal concerns. Pseudo-realistic perspectives and barely discernible objects give the viewer something to ponder and is a treat for those who get close to see the details and intricacies. I am constantly influenced by the abstract textures of Gustav Klimt, the folds of fabric by Johannes Vermeer, and the bold dramatic colorings of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. All of these propel me towards a body of work I can best describe as abstract dream-scapes.
