Artist Statement

For most of my adolescence and young adulthood, I dreamed of being the writer of next great American novel. As I grew older, it became harder and harder to put pen to paper, to answer the blinking cursor on the blank screen. Life and adulthood took their turns (not all bad) (not all good), and it culminated in the Pandemic. I needed an escape from the boredom of staring at a screen. At the whim of my significant other we tried pouring acrylic paint on canvas. To my immediate surprise, I felt a strong connection to the colors and the way they came together. It spoke to me in terms that I understood on a level deeper than language. This has led to a great exploration of techniques and styles that show up in the sheer number and variety of works that I have created thus far. My work is meant to convey this freedom from having to put language to my thoughts all of the time. Sometimes it is enough to have potential of the thought or the feeling expressed in brushstrokes and paint splatters and crumpled tissue paper.
