Creating an artwork provides me with a sense of discovery. Each blank canvas offers me a chance to use color, shape and form to organize and express my innermost feelings. My feelings are often reflected in one plane, but sometimes the complexity of life requires the use of more than one dimension to bring these feelings to fruition. I use multiple media to help liberate the emotions I feel and present them in a form that allows others to connect with them.
