ARTIST STATEMENT

I am interested in the science of color and light and its relationship to human moods and emotions. I use metallics to reflect light in different ways, and each color is used with intention. Reverting back to the fundamentals of art such as color, light, line, shape and composition has allowed me to experience art in a therapeutic way. I can let the materials and my own mind take me where they want to go, as well as let the viewer come to their own conclusion. The creation of art has become a meditation. Losing myself in the process of creating is the concept itself. I believe in making fine art accessible to everyone and incorporating it into everyday life. I strive to make that possible with customization and low prices.
