Artist Statement
“Someone is trying to tell you something” By portraying seemingly cheerful and bright work, I invite you to perceive beyond, and into the hidden messages of which I discuss my past concealed experiences of subjects and memories still oftentimes deemed “too taboo” for casual conversation. Images without direct eye contact with audiences are less inclined to allow your visit into their world, whereas imagery with mutual gaze is ready to open up. In these realms, apathy intertwines with a vibrancy that creates a “push and pull” within each composition to offer a familiar glimpse into the abstract.  I encourage you to listen, ask questions, enjoy, and stay awhile in this virtual experience… and hopefully find support from me to you. You’re not alone in your human experiences, and the only way to remind you is by sharing more.”
