“For me, creating is all about connection. The deeper I get into creating, the deeper I drop into and connect with my own “open” and authentic space. Be it a pairing of intense colors, bold brush strokes, or subtle mark making – I want to convey an energy and emotion to connect with the viewer. I draw inspiration from artists such as De Kooning, Pollock, and Van Gogh as well as by colors and forms found in nature.”
