Artist Statement & Biography
Being an emotional artist, I like to create what moves me. I use an art software program on a Wacom tablet along with acrylics and acrylic resin to create softness and bright texture to my work.
My paintings capture moments in time, I use photographs to help me capture those moments. The world is in a constant state of flux and is made of moments in time, and I like to bring out and capture their joy and preserve these memories though my art. My influences are everything I see, feel and experience.
