Artist Statement

I am an abstract mixed media artist. I make art because it’s an emotional outlet for me; I’ve always found myself looking for ways to “get stuff out.” Doing art gives me the freedom to emotionally make a mess, pick the pieces back up and turn my “mess” into something beautiful. I'm an intuitive painter, my work usually starts with my deciding what colors I want to use, I may have no other direction. 

I've always been trying to create this environment with my art. I want an observer to feel like they've walked into my imagination or my world. I look at everything how it relates to the canvas. So instead of seeing something 2D and imagining it 3D, I tend to see reality and visualize it in 2D. I tend to make a lot of abstract landscapes because of this idea.
