Everything starts with a feeling, I work with unconventional materials and spend months, sometimes years on my pieces. I explore with the idea of grunge, imperfection and beauty in the disaster. My work, while abstract, attempts to represent specific emotional instances or conflicts that occur within my mind and/or heart and/or “soul.”  I would be hard pressed to explain to a viewer what an individual painting or portion of a painting means.  My hope is that each viewer will experience some personal connection with a painting that translates into a better understanding of my experience.
