The most important standard to which I hold myself is to never take myself too seriously. My art is supposed to be fun, and I hope that
Wonder drives my process. The goal in my art and in life to make things happen: To take action to cause a reaction or have impact. This action/reaction effect is part of every piece I make: I make a mark, which changes the surface, and I react to make the next. My materials’ natural interactions and those interactions I cause become the evolution of piece. I push the boundaries with art materials and follow my curiosity. I test the limits of my materials and techniques by asking myself “what would happen if I….” With the end result, I hope to spark reaction with viewers, no matter the reaction.
A sense of abandon and play is apparent in all my artwork. Making art is a source of introspection and an expression of joy, pain, and all my emotions in between. For me, making art is an exploration and a never-ending journey that leads me where I am supposed to go when I am supposed to get there..
You will notice a vast array of styles and techniques in my art. While my hand is obvious in all my pieces, I don’t believe in the limiting notion of having “a style.” My renegade personality rejects the notion of limits, boundaries, and hard, fast rules. I know them and respect them, but I reject limits in my own work.
