Artist Statement

Painting is my means of working through the complexities of humans. The organic forms I paint represent my love/hate relationship with people. Humans are reflections of their experiences. Their thoughts, beliefs, likes, dislikes, and words are what make them individuals. I mimic this buildup of experience into personhood using line, color, form, and transparency. My goal is to create an atmospheric space that forces the viewer to look past the surface and into the center of each low gravity form I paint.
