ARTIST STATEMENT: Painting is my language of expression. If my message can only be expressed verbally, then there would be no reason for me to paint. It is the best way to express ideas I have about myself, life, truth and unconditional love.
I'm inspired by experiences of people in my environment as well concepts and styles from various artists and different forms of cultured Art. (i.e African paintings) My ideas and inspirations are constantly changing. To express this change I do not limit myself to one medium, style or technique. My approach varies from the use of Oils or acrylic to techniques ranging from impasto to palette painting. Many of my works feature the use of bright and warm colors with intention to evoke a feeling of serenity and love. Regardless, each decision depends on my inspiration at the moment.
Just as how my work urges me to want to know more about who I am; my truth, the truth about life, and unconditional love itself, my hope is for the artwork to speak to each viewer in a personal way and evoke questions from within about themselves, life and love from a natural and spiritual standpoint. Inevitably, the interpretation of the artwork is always left in the eye of the beholder.
