Artist Statement

 

My work is all about utilizing color and shape. With each piece, I try to show how color and abstract shapes can convey a multitude.

 

Each piece is planned and sketched but I always allow room for improvisation and re-design. I try to rely more on feeling when creating than a precise sketch or design. A limited color palette is determined first and the piece comes together around the colors. I fully believe that placing limitations on a piece can actually allow more freedom and broader range of expression.
