I see myself in the role of story teller, using mixed media to illustrate intertwining relationships between people, nature, history, and mythological icons. I like to design theater-like stages that are layered with characters and costumes and architecture which will tell you a timeless tale.
My artwork is inspired by life’s beauty and heartache, its power and its mystery. I love creating lyrical allegorical mixed media paintings. Weaving them like a tapestry with many layers of textures, patterns, collage, writing, symbols and paint.
I try to capture your interest and draw you in to a theater like scene with figures animals symbols and an evolving story.
My paintings are a paradox out of time maybe out of place. I hope to entice you to step into the story, take a deeper look to see what is beyond the facade. A question a situation a confrontation. A combination of past and present experiences, lifetimes. Each painting's meaning is what you perceive it to be.
