As an artist I would like to save the world with my art ... at least a part of it. I would like to change the way people perceive life and experience the world. Painting is my contribution to a world where art and life come together as a holistic journey. I would like my art to lift people's spirits; it should be love songs and cheers to human life.
I paint because painting is physically direct; this is a quality it shares with dance. Physicality is an important factor to me in art making, and I love the direct response of paint. As a painter, I try to let colors sing and vibrate to express energy, movement, and space. Like the dancer, music drives my creative force and helps move my brushes.

This series of Inocuts is based on my past history working as a gardener and an interest in botanical forms in a landscape. I recently moved to a town that has large industrial shipments moving across the landscape by train. I am interested in the juxtaposition of these natural forms and patterns with ones that are mechanical and man-made.

These acrylic on canvas palette knife paintings are taken from my BIOMES series, whereby I abstracted environments such as woodlands, grasslands and tundras while contemplating the importance of symbiosis in sustainability. I chose to create these sculptural paintings through the combination of evocative indexical gestures and color harmonies that I believe would offer the viewer a haptic/optic experience which can easily induce synesthesia, making these works of art memorable despite their smaller size.
