Artist Statement

I create art because I must.* It’s the core of who I am. I make art with emotion, integrity, intensity and hope. My art is challenging. As art should be.

My art involves experimenting with paint to create abstract emotive works. When painting, I challenge myself to complete a work in one sitting. I almost always do not have a concrete idea for a piece before putting brush and paint to canvas. It starts with an emotion, which then leads to a specific color palette. This method can sometimes lead to what at first can be interpreted as a mistake in the process. But this is always merely a change of direction, producing unexpected beauty.

I’m inspired by the world around me. My art continues to evolve and take shape every day. For purchases and commissions and to learn more about my work, you can call, email or visit my website.

Follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

* Inspired by dialogue in the film The Red Shoes:
Boris: Why do you want to dance?
Victoria: Why do you want to live?
Boris: Well, I don't know exactly why, er, but I must.
Victoria: That's my answer too.
