I explore issues of impermanence, separation, and inter-connectivity in my drawings, paintings, sculptures, and films. The process of making art for me is not about the finished work itself as much as the visceral experience of creating.
My art is constantly morphing and evolving as I learn, grow, and experience more in my life. I try to create in a less controlled or confined manner, which allows for my own personal expression to flow freely. I draw and paint at a quick pace, without hesitation, allowing for my subconscious mind do the work. This method allows me to loosen up and make marks based on the connection I feel with the subject I am witnessing or experience I am immersed in.
I believe everyone has there own unique way of seeing that can only be viewed by them. I like to think that I show the viewer my own personal way of seeing without forcing it. If there is force in revealing my own perspective, the work created seems to loose something that can only happen in those moments of meditative stillness. I am not tied down to any particular medium but do tend to work with ink, pencil, and oil pastels. I also use the method of collage with found materials and textured layers of paint. My work is often painterly and loosely descriptive. The medium, for me, is usually dependent on the work I am creating and the feeling I am expressing.
I have always been fascinated by the human face and how it expresses so many emotions, sometimes in hidden ways. My art is about exploring what it is I am seeing and making marks that are spontaneous and indicative to my instinctive perceptions. Like life, I believe the act of creating is based on moment-to-moment experience, that it is always changing, and is full of happy accidents and surprises.
