Artist Statement

I strive to combine the esthetic feel of ancient and modern using a bold mix of styles ranging from weathered and organic to sleek and contemporary.

I use brushes, palette knives and scrapers to manipulate acrylic paint on canvas creating works that are abstract or have landscape elements to them.

My process starts out very spontaneously, then becomes more detailed as the image presents itself.

My goal is not to document subjects or to make statements, but to make an emotional connection with the viewer allowing them to explore their own spirit and to inspire them as well.
