Painting from the school of Abstract Expressionism, I use color, texture, and layering to tell the deeply personal and complex stories we tell ourselves when no one is watching. Each painting is comprised of many layers, with each hidden one conveying its own story through the ripples and marks it leaves on the surface of the finished canvas.
We are not these individual tales. We are all of them combined, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Every day. Our experiences shape us in hidden ways, creating complicated patterns we may never fully see and that others can only sense. My canvases reflect those nuanced layers of our interior selves through color and laborious brushwork. I can only hope the end results show that even the most broken things in us shine with beauty if we take the time to look at ourselves through eyes colored only with self-love and forgiveness.
Enjoy my work for its riot of color and movement or explore the deeper meaning and hidden stories each painting whispers in your ears as your create your own songs about what each pieve means to you. Your journey and experience with my work is just as personal as mine.
