"I can describe my artistic process as a balance of planning and intuition influenced by my studies as a classical vocalist. I use music as a catalyst for visualization and movement as I work along the surface of the canvas layering heavy body acrylics with palette knife. With intention, I do not impose my thoughts or exact inspirations so I may encourage the viewer to create their own journey and find personal significance in connection to my art"
"Painting is never a release or means of escape from reality for me. Only when I feel most connected, have the most clarity, when I am overcome with gratitude and awe of the world around me, only then do I paint. I am fortunate to be painting so often. I love the ability of others to pick up on this positive energy I have applied to canvas and in this shared resonance, I am fueled to create."
