Artist Statement My work is derived from the inner struggle caused by exterior forces and the will to prevail. By using real places that are abstracted, I set a stage for the figure that wields the tools of strength to battle these forces. With color and texture, space and tension are created. Having made much of my own pigment a texture can be created that is unique to this process. My intention is to create a state of harmony amongst the elements even when the painting is portraying chaos. The relationship of symbols speaks of my personal experiences and the process of their creation has become meditation.
