Artist Statement

When I paint there are no rules.  Something makes my soul spark to ignite a fire on my canvas.  It can be a song, a poem, a quote, and or something someone says to me.  A fire twitches from my center and explodes to my fingers tips, translating to my canvas.  My paintings are never planned. They are always in the moment.  Each layer represents a different and separate moment of life, emotion, feeling, time.  There are never any boundaries.  I love to explore different techniques and variations of application of my medium. 

My canvas may be a piece of furniture, paper, a wall, artist canvas, even a rock.  Whatever I see and am inspired to render my passion of the moment. 

The artists that inspire me most are the likes of Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.  I have always been attracted to abstract art since I was a child.  I love the feeling I get when I see a painting that leaves me breathless.  I try to feel what the artist was experiencing during their “moment”.  That’s how I want my paintings to portray to others.
