Artist Statement

Art has always been my way of connecting with others. A way of expressing myself and showing others how I see the world. I have always had sensory sensitivities, particularly texture. When it comes to eating, I always care more about how something feels than how it tastes, the same goes for my taste in art. I have always enjoyed tactile art, things that invoke the sense of physical feeling, even if the viewer is not actually allowed to touch it. I find that impasto paintings display a sense of motion and allows the viewer to visualize the artist’s movement throughout its creation. I find inspiration in nature and architecture meanwhile I utilize a heavy sense of texture to connect with those who share the texture sensitivities in a playful manner.
