Artist Statement

I'm a mixed media artist who uses paint, oil pastels, fabric, photography, paper, the occasional plastic bag and anything else that I find visually compelling. I like to create colorful and vibrant worlds that I'd like to hang out in. Lately, I've been experimenting with finding different methods to create layers and transparency with, and am greatly drawn to silk and other fabrics that will allow that possibility.

I'm very interesting in finding ways to visually express the idea of subtext, or decoding the unseen.
