Artist Statement

I construct spaces from memory, observation and imagination in order to explore and employ color to convey an emotional experience. I select high key, saturated and contrasting colors to impart a visceral experience, stressing free distortion of form and color to express inner sensations. Through color, the viewer experiences the warmth and feels the light of the space instead of merely observing it.
Our modernized lives are consumed in a chaotic cloud of technology and time constraint. Our souls rancid with blind self-importance and the need for external validation, we have forgotten the ease with which our chests rise and fall when the sky is not obscured with angularity. The summer sun of the mountains resonates within us in a way that erases the separation between ourselves and our surroundings. The sound of the ocean drowns the superfluous worries of this world and quiets the mind.
