  Artist Statement  

I work in many different mediums from 3D mixed media to oil paint.
A background in theatre production and costume design has led to a love of the ornate and decorated. I believe in always taking time to make something beautiful, because one day it will make someone, somewhere, happy. Part of my heart and mind is in every piece I create. 

Music heavily influences my work. My portfolio includes paintings that bring to life the song lyrics of some of my favorite artists including Roxy Music, Nick Cave, and Bob Dylan. My 3D flower pieces further visually express my passion towards and love of music.
Those pieces incorporate physical flowers, guitar picks, and speakers. 

In a different vein are my calls for revolution pieces. The signature red paint statement pieces serve as rallying cries that we cannot remain uninformed, uninvolved and unconcerned. Visual art is my outlet to express all the thoughts and emotions of an introverted artist trying to find beauty and peace in a world filled with oppression, frustration,
and mixed messages.
