I have always been a visual person, constantly observing and questioning my surroundings. Most of my work is derived purely from the idea of spontaneous creation of form, aided by visual analysis of the world around. The images and mark-making created are heavily based upon aesthetically pleasing forms, relating to ideas such as nature and industrialization. Extreme attention to the application of color is also crucial to me. The incorporation of color acts as the defining culmination of these abstracted images and gives them new life.
I also try to incorporate ideas of narratives derived from past experiences within my own life, or others that I have witnessed. The audience should view my work with an open mind, as if they were reading a book with no pictures, but in this case it would be a scene with no words. The idea of having the viewers place themselves within the artwork and truly question the nature of its imagery is very important. My intentions are to spark one's emotions, memories of the past, or even just being able to enjoy the fictional beauty the work has to offer.
The goal is to be able to learn and master this idea of a "fictional world" the viewer engages, along with the power that color has when added to form, thus creating depth, range, language and more importantly, to ignite one's own imagination when examining the imagery that I bring into this world.
