The purpose of my work is to evoke emotion. I don't want you to feel exactly what I was feeling while creating each piece, or know specifically why I painted it. Rather, I want these works to bring out a personal experience that is uniquely your own. To conjure up a memory or feeling in you that you were not expecting. Through spatial relationships, colors and patterns, I build layer upon layer into each painting. I begin with a color, design and layout sketch in mind, but then let instinct and chance take charge and end up with a canvas that is always a surprise.
