Artist Statement: Innocence and ignorance. These are qualities, which I feel are undervalued today. I welcome them into my art and explore them with color shape texture, technique and subject matter. I use them to convey that perfect moment of emotional realization. A child beholding the power of the thundering turfs. A woman confronting the complexity of herself. Even a simple animal symbolizing a pure anthropomorphic emotion, expression or personality.
I choose bright clear colors for my paintings because I find them uplifting and expressive. I work quickly to maintain the mood of each piece and I allow my feelings to flow into my work. My typical mediums are watercolors, acrylic paints and ink, alone and in mixed media applications these all deliver the color intensity and immediacy I need in my art.
