Artist Statement Life is the most exhilarating and disheartening experience. Through the ups and downs we somehow continue to find beauty. My life is not perfect but my art takes me beyond my ordinary environment. Art is a place where I am free to be vulnerable and very passionate about how and what is needed to be expressed. This earth and all other things that God has created is so marvelous. I try to interpret that beauty by using vivid colors throughout my drawings and paintings. Color speaks to everyone one differently but it is always the first thing to catch viewers’ attention. My goal is to capture what we see in our everyday lives and make it fascinating again.
