Artist Statement:
In my paintings, variations of marks, from improvisational brushstrokes to detailed pattern work, create networks. I chose specific color palettes and a variety of textures to evoke the varied emotions from human experience. Within my art, biomorphic forms exist in conjunction with elements of whimsy & glamour. I hope the viewer is able to experience the climactic highs & lows of one of my pieces like when one listens to a symphony.
