Artist Statement

My work explores emotion through gesture and movement. Using a range of mixed media methods and varying degrees of abstraction, my approach involves deconstructing and reassembling a language of both recognized and invented marks and symbols to explore minimalism as a personal narrative.

 

The direction of my paintings evolves from the response I experience through the process of making. As I work, I focus on how tension and balance develop and how shape and color interact with each other and their surroundings. Similar to a conversation, a dialogue occurs between the medium and myself, informing the overall trajectory of a work.
