After following an irresistible urge to learn about abstract art, I found that abstraction fulfills what I have always been trying to portray with my artwork. An intuitive painter who lets the painting lead the way, I now combine many media and have found a new love for collage. The feeling of a place or time is what I am aiming for. Combining disparate elements into a harmonious outcome is truly expressive of my beliefs about life itself. I continue working with a painting until something meaningful to me emerges, occasionally accepting the chaos instead of searching for harmony.
