My work is a direct reflection of my mood and emotional state. The Act of creating is also a struggle for me that opens a new conversation and awareness within myself. The process of my creations begin with writing, sketching randomly and rhythmically, applying various marks and splotches of paint, then I apply and remove paint to reveal images, developing them to my liking. This process may take minutes, hours or weeks to complete. I love the imperfect, the mistakes and the adrenaline that drives me to solving them, and by sharing my art I hope to connect to others. Making art is also a means of solitude, a time to talk to God and a safe place of recovery and healing.
