I create art that gives people the opportunity to tell their own story through colors traveling and settling through the work’s surface.
As I create the art, shapes and images, characters of this artistic narrative, interact with each other as they build the plot of the work. These interactions are built out of tension and release built upon variations of color, texture and the placement of each element in the art pieces.
Unlike a written or verbal tale, visual art has endless possibilities. Once my work of creating and building the art is finished, the story belongs to the viewer of the artwork. Each person who interacts with the paintings, drawings, installations or any other art form I create, will tell their own story within the colors of the art.
