Artist Statement "I love creating large scale paintings because it enables me access to a full range of movement and provides a space to hold my intensity. I access my raw unfiltered emotions and thoughts to drive my dance on the canvas. Free from my logical mind I explode through color and movement - unshackled, aggressive, spontaneous, vibrant, intense, playful, curious and uninhibited.
Painting allows me to tap into my primal self and it leaves me feeling exhilarated and euphoric. I focus on the process of creating and the paintings are a result of that experience. My goal is to experience and create a full range of notes while painting such that the painting will sing when my dance is done."
