As long as I can remember I have been drawn to art and have always had a pencil or brush in hand, it is undeniably who I am and my art comes from the very depths of my soul. When I look at any of my art from over the years I feel enveloped with a sense of "coming home" as thought the art will safely wrap me in a comforting embrace and brings a feeling of calm and peace.
As the years have passed my art has evolved into deeper, more meaningful and thought provoking work. I feel drawn to create art that is bold and fun at first appearance, but when delved into one will find there is more going on than just pleasing colors and composition. Within the art there are symbols that foster positivity and hope, that provide the viewer with a feeling of strength and the fulfillment of dreams.
As an artist I want my art to have meaning and inspire viewers to be the best version of themselves, to reach deep within and find the strength and character to be who they were meant to be. As I paint each new painting I am finding within my own self that I can do so much more than what I ever thought possible, that only my thoughts hold me back, and to learn to always turn those thoughts to the positive. My new art is teaching me that I am in control of my future, of whether or not my dreams come true, and of how my legacy of art will be perceived; and I hope with each brushstroke everyone who sees my art can find that same power within and be inspired to embrace their life and choices and go out and inspire and empower others through the power of "Art that Colors the Soul".
All the Best,
