Artist Statement-

"The need to create has always been a primary focus in my life. It functions as both a form of expression as well as a form of therapy. My passion for creation has taken many directions, which have led to my current body of work. My preference for bold colors and organic shapes paired with a love of abstract design has resulted in my current endeavor to create images that tap into a feeling of calm within the viewer. My creative process involves more of an exploration of the balance and composition of the shapes and colors than a preplanned design for a final product."
