Artist Statement

Through abstraction, my work explores collective energy, individuality, and the behavior of groups. I capitalize on the transparency of resin and oil paint allowing elements of painting, collage, and drawing to remain distinctive contributors to a composition and work toward an overall feeling of harmony and balance.
