In life I like to take the things I enjoy and share them with others so that they might enjoy them too. In art I like to take the things I enjoy and share them with others so that they might enjoy them as well. The things I enjoy come from all directions. The directions include those young and old, from different backgrounds and nationalities, and natural and synthetic. I enjoy working in classical mediums such as paint and pencil and the new age digital world.
My work with children has kept my imagination fresh and on a large scale. My life as an adult has refined my imagination into a mature state. But, I have developed the ability to turn off my “mature” filter. I can explore an imagined idea fully, as a child would, without the limits of an adult and then later come back through that idea with my “grown-up” thoughts and refine the idea into something that is emotionally mature and in a medium that is appropriate.
My likes and my imagination seem to guide my art into a self-expression. I continue to learn from the artists I study and the artists around me. My art is the expression of how I was raised, the person I choose to be, and the person I will become. It is molded from the society I was raised in, the person other people have made me become, and the world that will shape what I will become.
