Artist Statement

By merging dreams and realities, painting and photography blend,
and left is the beauty of the connection made,
authenticity of raw feeling, and the candid familiarity of
that captured moment’s impression.
Words, as images, run through identifying our histories.
Most memorable often is the bearing of color.
Color, or lack of it, sets a mood, can shock or
satiate, remaining even through closed eyelids.
Use of reflective materials, as an alternative to color, is a form of invitation
for an observer to enter the image itself,
the border between a painting and its environment are erased.
My work explores emotions, incorporating color, texture, and the confrontational subject,
imploring an immediate reaction and a fervent lasting impact.
