'My early days as an artist began with coloring, utilizing a small box of crayons and then graduating to the longed-for 64-piece set. I challenged myself to stay inside the lines. Fast forward to the present day - I have gone from staying in the lines to straying outside the lines and becoming an abstract artist. For me, the straying and looking beyond the obvious has helped influence my art and who I am today. Painting and creating in the abstract provide me with the wiggle room to be in the moment and see what comes up as I put color on my canvas. My paintings evolve. They start out one way and then, through gestures and layering, end up going in a completely new direction. In the words of Edward Hopper, “if i could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.” Creating art is MY communication tool of choice. Painting in the abstract allows me to feel and express my innermost emotions and begin dialogue.
