I am an organic and intuitive painter that uses the colors and forms found in dreams, memories, and the natural world to create spatial compositions and scapes. Each one of a kind original painting unfolds through an organic process of adding and subtracting colors, mark making, and sometimes textures until the scape or spatial composition emerges on the painting. The abstracted scene created through exploration and intuition allows for escape and immersion. The expressionist paintings purposely leave the human subject out of the composition. Each painting is meant to be experienced by the person looking at it. I want each person to come to the paintings with their own dreams, nostalgia, backgrounds and immerse themselves in the painting. To fill in the blanks of what the air might feel like, the smells and sounds, the life that is in each painting. Colors and shapes invoke meanings and memories for each viewer. My paintings are not after realistic representation, instead they exist in the depths of dreams, memories, moods, and tones. With our mediated world and technological stimulus increasing all around us, my paintings offer a therapeutic balance in creation and thus I believe as a visual world as well, a moment to let oneself breathe while engaging with a different space and visual encounter. My art feels familiar but fantastical and dramatic in expression.
