“I am my truest self when I am creating art.
It is one of the most organic and fulfilling outlets I have to express myself. At times, the urge to create is so strong, it feels overwhelming. I love the process of creating. From the emerging idea to the completed work. It is all fascinating to me. It is an incredible gift to take something from nothing and morph it into a form that evokes a feeling, portrays an idea or spurs a thought. What could be better than that?
My greatest influence is nature. In nature, I see art everywhere. The balance of light, space and perfect elemental shapes. I love to capture that raw perfection. The truest form of abstract art to me is a dense forest juxtapose against a jagged mountain peak or the solid wood of a tree trunk. Opposites, yet both perfect. Part of the same system. I enjoy the freedom to express my ideas and not be bound by other
peoples thoughts. Nobody tells me what to put on the canvas and that is what makes it the ultimate free form of expression. I want others to see the natural perfection of the world through my art.
My style may be an amalgamation of other artists but my choice of subject matter and the story behind each piece is what makes my art unique.”
