Art has always influenced and permeated my life in a myriad of ways. I come from a family of artists. I have photographed, painted in oil and pastels, and sculpted in ceramic. For a while now, my fascination has been abstract acrylics and the way a canvas seems to unveil a secret unknown to even the artist. I have been lovingly influenced by several abstract artists including Cody Hooper, Suraj Patel, Jaanika Talts, Isabelle Zacher-Finet and Michael Lang.
Many of my paintings have an emotional quality that spills out like a birth, forming themselves into otherworldy lifescapes. They often resemble interstellar clouds, lights and silhouettes against something luminous, with the suggestion of mysterious forms and creatures sometimes arising in the mindscape of the observer. These paintings suggest a combination of serenity and tumultuousness, aliveness and movement, and the sweetness of intersecting worlds. Channeling this has been enormously satisfying: to place on canvas what is originally conjured as an apparition and ultimately revealing a tapestry of parts and wholes.
