Artist Statement & Process


My work explores the relationship between reality and the imaginary world, merging the two into surreal creations with exquisite color combinations.



My heavily textured paintings are full of life and combine bursts of color with intricate designs. My pieces include generous layers of paint to create depth and allow your wall art to feel alive.



I never know how the paint will land on the surface and I don't blend the paint with traditional brushes – it is about intentional strokes using my palette knives then it just is what it is. I find this process satisfying and therapeutic.

 
I use a variety of materials and processes in my work and the outcome is not usually calculable. I allow my heart to naturally guide me through the painting to create fascinating new techniques such as layering paint over multiple sessions, manipulating paint to create intricate effects.
