Art allows us to see the familiar through new eyes and give voice to our subconscious. It is a journey of transformation. Fusing representational and abstract elements to capture the subject and emotion of the moment is what drives my work. I strive to capture a moment in time, an emotion, an essence and reflect that in a way that invites the viewer to become a part of that moment. Using textured paper and paint together adds an element of unexpectedness, which leads me in new directions during the creative process. I want to create work that calls forth a feeling, a connection, a sense of something beyond the image itself.
