I have always been driven to create art, whether it is drawing, painting or sculpting using a variety of mediums. The satisfaction I receive from the process of transforming what I imagine into a reality for others to experience is the reason I am an artist. I use strong, fluid lines, exciting color combinations, and dramatic compositions in my abstract figurative, landscaped and abstract work. I strive to make powerful, intimate, thought provoking work that touches others.
