Artist Statement

Nov. 2004

My art is often related to nature as I feel a strong kinship with Mother Earth. Patterns of organic shapes, colors and spaces have always intrigued me, and I enjoy abstracting these elements to create images that excite me.
While designing my work on canvas or board, I work out a composition that looks right to me, paying attention to how the negative spaces fit together with the objects; the values of light and dark, the hues of color and how they all interact with one another. Combining these actions reminds me of putting a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle together. I prefer
to use an impasto style of painting to create textures in my work. This style expresses the variations in surfaces of natural elements, which fascinate me.

In addition to the variations in the surfaces in my work, I also strive to create images that convey emotions and moods. My goal is to convey these feelings by combining texture and color in a way which I hope become interesting to the spectator.
