As an artist, I work primarily in acrylic and mixed media – collage, china marker, graphite and oil pastel. I have always been drawn to the contrast created between architectural lines and shapes and the more organic flow of our natural surroundings. In my work, I strive to create a balance of rigid lines among layers of loose marks and color. Every piece is a raw and authentic expression of my thought and emotion – my experiences. Each layer is a snapshot of thought and dictates the next. My work tells my story, my hope is that the viewer can find their own story embedded within a given piece.
