My Art is an expression of the gratitude I have for my life. I am a member of the Lenni Lenape tribe, and for that I am grateful and blessed. I believe the most important thing we as artists can do is create community-through evoking emotions, questions, commentary and moments for pause.
My work straddles Abstract and Contemporary Expressionism. I use the exploration of color to show the relationship of feelings and emotions, power and resilience, resistance and allowance.
We have a beauty of mind narrative that I hope to express through the process, that ultimately speaks to the vulnerabilities, strengths, and courage of humanity’s every day and how it influences our Nature. My subject matter strives to express the simple of what can be conceived as a complex environment; Ruins, local canyons, landscapes and figures that inhabit my mind space.
I strive to ask my audience to look beneath the surface of my works and in their life experience in general. Look at the borders, above, below and inward. Notice the bleeds of the negative space, and take a breath. The White space in my work and life allows quiet to scream, ideas to merry and allowance to breath. I hope to help facilitate a level of connection through color, depth, and composition.
Maybe this connection will help save us from ourselves and in turn facilitate some healing for us all and Mother Earth.
