Artist Statement

“In my art I use color AND words to evoke strong memories, moods, and feelings. There is no denying that the power a work of art can create even causes emotions beyond the viewer’s control. I want the viewer to see memories, and experience moods and feelings. I create art from acrylics to collages, all based on my feelings or mood at that given moment. I hope these works of art I have created can impact and speak to your soul the same way that they’ve spoken to mine. ”
