Artist Statement

It's all about the texture!!! I use multiple layers of texture to represent the idea that art, for me, comes from intuition and memory. The texture acts as a guide, helping me envision what the image is to become visually. The texture acts as a stepping stone! 

This body of work is a fusion of material, paint, and I use photography to inspire the theme of my work.  I tend to use gold, silver, and copper leaf because it brings forth a unique light and familiarity, creating a moment of reflection and emotion. All of my pieces are original, and each original image changes in its own surrounding light and atmosphere.
