I am an artist, a digital animator and painter who has lived in Manhattan most of my life. Since I was 15, I was naturally drawn to abstract expressionism. The basis of my paintings typically revolves around color relationships, the dynamics that occur between the various ways I apply the color, the diverse shapes and lines created, the negative space relationships, and the types of materials used.
I find inspiration in the various ways that movement is created through interacting color, light, forms and lines. My approach to painting is done in a direct manner with vibrant colors, and bold painterly brush strokes.
At the center of my creative process is exploring the physical interconnections of landscapes to the spiritual, and discovering how they alter our sense of identity. My paintings are also discussions about places, lands I have visited, and the natural features /fibers from our past that are woven into our present.
