About The Artist

Artist Statement

I am an eclectic artist. I thrive in discovering  new ways to explore and express myself in my art.ƒAs an artist, my objective is to make art that is both revealing and
accessible but also acts as a muse for the viewer. I gather my inspiration
from people, books, dreams, and unexpected emotions. I paint
and layer onto my canvases many symbols such as fragments of maps, letters,
ancient inscriptions, photos both found and self-taken, found objects
and mementos, and contemporary poetry.ƒ  I thrive in finding and searching my own ways and use my instincts. I believe in WHAT COMES FROM WITHIN.
