My goal as an artist is to create what I feel to be aesthetically pleasing paintings, which evoke an emotional response, from the viewer. A response, be it positive or negative, with the hope that the painting makes the viewer an active participant through discussion. I achieve the desired response through experimentation with color, texture, line quality, and subject matter.
My art is influenced heavily by nature, both historic and modern symbolism, as well as the works of my fellow artists. I can not classify my work with anyone artistic movement or genre because I am inspired by and respect all forms of artistic expression, such as Matisse, Van Gogh, O’Keeffe, Pre-Raphaelites, Impressionists, Graffiti Artists, etc…. I find inspiration in the worlds’ diverse cultures, religions, and folklore. But more importantly, I am inspired by things a little closer to home, like friends and family, music and movies, along with the occasional romance novel and gossip magazine.
