Statement : 

My current body of work walks the line of spontaneity and intentionality by portraying the chaos and complexity of life. This work is an interpretation of how I experience the world around me as well as how I explore my own anxious mind. The surfaces build similarly to stream of consciousness writing and a push-pull effect takes place that requires me to act and then react to the painted surface. Many of the compositions begin as experiments of gesture and color theory, and transform into a journal of personal life experiences, thoughts, and expressions. In my current body of work, I visualize mental and emotional landscapes that form in my subconscious. Artistic expression and exploration with materials drives my most recent work and provides a means for investigation as well as introspection.
