ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings are reflections on personal experiences... most often times spent in nature, away from the city. I work intuitively, painting and drawing with the goal of capturing the essence of a place or time. I work in my home studio in Atlanta, GA, surrounded by imaginative children, crazy pets and creative neighborhood characters. I try to incorporate this playful energy in my work with freely drawn marks, unexpected color palettes and suggestions of shapes or narratives that invite the viewer to complete the story. I hope viewing my art provides people with the same meditative escape from reality that making the art provides me.
