ARTIST STATEMENT: I recreate the way that I see my surroundings on a daily basis: in contrasting, bold blocks of shapes and saturated colors. I sometimes envision entire live spaces and moments as complete works of art. At other times, a single object or form, removed from its surroundings, may be the subject of my work. These visual snapshots, whether based on my daily surroundings, moments captured, or single objects, are then translated into mixed media pieces. Having a background in graphic design, I create paintings that celebrate both art and design.
