Artist Statement

Color has the ability to provoke an endless amount of feelings. While painting, my concern is how colors communicate, enabling one another to become something bold, new, and fresh. A variety of materials link all the components, contributing to the final piece’s unification. Every painting contains bright, extraordinary colors, and what seems like chaos at first, transforms into a balanced and intentional explosion of color. I play with the opacity of the multi-layer paint allowing the colors to intermingle and form new shapes and tones. there is an inherent contradiction within my work. While I use thin application, the colors are what directs the image, and although the color-form created is non-objective, there is a distinct atmosphere and depth. Through all of the pandemonium within the painting, balance emerges.
