AR Artist of the Year 2012–2013
Starting from a black canvas, I acknowledge that one must experience darkness to truly see light. I seek out the light in every aspect of my life, searching for that sliver of illumination in the midst of even the darkest moments. This longing for light drives and transforms the spark of inspiration to the fire of creation.
I strive to create a vibrancy through my use of color; an enveloping experience that washes over the viewer and draws them in to the work, filling them with lush colors, rich textures, and thought provoking imagery.
I paint echoes of my life, the ripples that life’s moments leave behind, giving the viewer a glimpse of my mind and soul, and a window to look within themselves.
