Artist Statement "My primary goal when creating my abstracts is to breathe life into what I do. One of my practices is to make sure that I don't stay locked up in the studio for too long. I get out, explore the world and other forms of art for inspiration. I think this balance helps to keep my creative energy fresh and exciting. This relates to new ideas and the ability to stay excited about what I do everyday. As you can tell by my work, I like to create living emotion in my paintings, like a great song that gives you goosebumps. My wish is to make you want to keep coming back for more so that you may explore your own spirit, inspire who you are and what you want to become in this lifetime. Art can help us grow, heal our hearts, excite our senses and inspire new ideas. Its one of the most valuable gifts to society."
