I work in acrylic to create works that is appear fluid and solid simultaneously. My process creates work that seems to be in motion. Though the colors in my work overlap and blend they do not lose their individual character. The condition changes but the essence stays constant.

My diverse color and intense palettes represent the different facets of life and experiences. I believe it takes variety to achieve intense power and beauty.

My work is an expression of my passion for movement and the changing nature of things.  I create to elevate my soul. That is also the reaction I am trying to evoke from people who see and own my work. The world can be too serious and dark without the intentional addition of good and joyful things.

Many people who see my work ask me the same question, “What is your inspiration?” I am inspired to create my pieces by so many things: nature, the psychology of color, and the organic movement of fluids. For me, it is as much about the act of expression itself as it is about the story I am telling.

Seeing someone really connect to a piece on a personal level is magnificent to me. Telling people the story of each piece from my perspective is interesting and exciting but it doesn’t compare to talking with someone about their experience with the piece.
