Artist Statement

In my work, I strive to bear my inner life for all to see. I want to share what I am feeling as vibrantly and as clearly as I can, and I draw inspiration from all the colors around me. Anytime I draw, I want to get out of my conscious mind and let my subconscious thoughts and beliefs and perceptions flow outward, doing everything that I can not to constrain my creativity. In doing that, I believe that I can make art that more closely resembles life, art that I can be proud to call my own.

My work, of course, is never about the picture that you get at the end: it's about the process! I want to be true to myself throughout my artistic process, judging nothing that comes from my hands. If it shows up on the canvas, then it means something to me, and that itself is valuable enough. Colors, contrasts, shapes: those are my subjects, and I find them endlessly engaging. I find joy while I am creating art, more than anything, and I believe fully in the power of letting go.
