As an Artist, I have always been fascinated with the process of painting. The act of Painting and experimentation with various mediums or materials has always been an integral part of my visual language. I am spontaneous and intuitive when it comes to my mark-making, striving to convey emotions through color interactions and movement. Creating a sense of balance and harmony within my paintings to connect to a deeper sense of myself and my surroundings. Having lived in New York City for over 25 years, my work has been influenced by the urban environment. The beauty of deterioration and rebuilding is present in my layering and textures, as is the influence of music that has always been a driving force in my life. Song titles will often lend their names to the pieces they have inspired.
I started this year by dedicating myself to create a piece of art every day for 100 Days, integrating a new concept every 10 days to explore new ways of challenging myself. I decided to continue this project for the remainder of the year as a way to remain disciplined. This has been a soul-searching experience in terms of opening myself up more and breaking through all those layers. The values of art that I hold dear are about continuing to learn and grow, and most importantly to keep working.
