Artist Statement: My work engages the discovery of our human condition and its existence through a fury of movements and texture. Each body of work revolves through a specific expression of our personal journeys and the tension that exists in those memories. By using a variety of layers, medium, marks, texture and deconstruction I am able to share a story in the same way one’s life is lived, through memories and experiences, from youth to adulthood, at times using text to provide clues to content and interpretation.
