ARTIST STATEMENT


"As an artist, I seek to portray a journey in to my deepest self, dreams and fears. My style is about fantastic images displayed in a realistic manner that captures a moment in time, thus telling a story. Although my themes tend to be obscure, they are at the same time elegant and thought provoking. I enjoy using different media, such as acrylics, oil pastel and pastels, to convey diverse feelings and imagery. My goal as an artist is to give the viewer a starting point for questions and answers about themselves."
