About my Work
My body of work is a representation of emotion captured through the relations and experiences I have. Painting then becomes a means for me to record, look back, and grow. Creating visually the trials that we have and the choices we make. The results then can lead to our triumph or to our demise. I let the experience of these settings make for the audience to become unified with the canvas. When painting on the canvas I choose oils to bring out rich tones and color that can provoke the mode and atmosphere of my subjective narratives. The act of layering and repetition of stroke leads me to call upon my subconscious. The paint then responds and communicates to me through the process. That process of making a finished piece is then a captured state of mind, a story to be shared where there sometimes is a cliffhanger and sometimes a comfortable ending.
