Artist Statement

Over the last three decades, my mind has played tricks on me. At times this would be frustrating. At times exhilarating. But there was a constant stress associated with trying to reconcile the differences between the way my dyslexic brain interprets the world and how others view it. Art has always been a safe space to cultivate and express my experiences.

My artwork seeks to find a balance between abstract thoughts and the material world. I use contrast and texture to communicate in my process driven work. Mixed media painting, collage and sgraffito techniques are currently my most exciting expressions.

For a long time, I tried to hide the lines of color that defined me. My work is a form of meditation that helps to quiet the noise in my mind. The constant push and pull between right and left brain. The battle between conforming and being free.
This unique wiring helps me conceptualize information and communicate freely through a language more powerful then words.
