I love bold and vibrant color. I love chunky textures and graphic shapes. I love art with explosive movement as well as subtle lines. As a child, I dreamt of being a dancer; I create with that in mind. Striving to get colors and shapes to dance and move in a playful, pleasing and sometimes surprising way, my pieces are joyously unrestrained. I always start with a charcoal, crayon or graphite drawing and then apply many layers of paint, scratching, scraping and wiping through to reveal sweet little tidbits. My goal is to create paintings that are courageous, flowing, joyful and invigorating.
