I infuse thick, juicy, layered paint, energetic brush strokes, striking color combinations and graphic cropping in all of my work. Art tends to be good for everyone involved, whether it stimulates activism for an important cause or whether it brings pure entertainment. My work sometimes reflects the “Instagram Generation” highlighting the fact that social media is here to stay. This generation has grown up with it, and they are unaware of what life was like without it. The youth need to learn how to survive with it. If one posted something on social media, they probably felt good about it. Some of my paintings depict the new self-assured image of women and men and the next generation of empowerment.  What I strive for while painting, is to capture excitement. I hope that when the viewer walks away from seeing my paintings that they feel something, anything. Perhaps they will want to create something themselves. The viewer may become awakened and realize “this is it.” We only have one life, enjoy it, relish in the turmoil, the achievements, try and take it all in, no need to bypass life with all of its ups and downs. Again, I infuse thick, juicy, layered paint, energetic brush strokes, striking color combinations and graphic cropping so that one can feel the delight in living, the power of what’s inside each and every one of us. Embrace it. When words no longer seem to convey, I’m compelled to paint. Paintings must come out for me, almost like a sneeze.
