Artist Statement

I believe the sky holds untold stories ... I paint to share them.

My work allows me the freedom to explore everything and anything that piques my interest ... to remain open to all possibilities, to pour my experiences and emotions into whatever I'm working on that moment, that hour .. that day.

For what it's worth, here's my take ..

Life is messy .. forever fluid ... sacred..

There are pivotal moments that come along and change you, shape you and push you to strip away the layers and discover who you really are and what your made of. That's why every single time I pick up a paintbrush I feel emotional ... because I'm pouring it all out for everyone to see.
