I use many different mediums, such as oil, watercolor, acrylic, fibers, and mixed media; to name a few. I believe that working in a single medium can be restrictive to my artistic process and creative exploration. Each idea manifests in its own individual style and is complimented by the choice of materials.
My art work is a journey through my life and experiences. They seek to define my emotions and display the process of creation. Each painting is a balance between planning and spontaneity. Like the tide this balance ebbs and flows from one extreme to the other. I allow each piece to create it's own path even if it strays from my initial vision. Natural elements are by far one of my truest inspirations. I love the moods that nature provides and I capitalize on that in my work. Color is also a huge love and source of inspiration. I love how the use of color and color combinations can create mood and energy flow within a piece.
