“As a child, crayons were my love…using colors rich and vibrant, deep and dark. Now as an adult, each color evokes an emotion within me that I portray through my work. Each piece of art that I create has a special ambience; in creating monoprints, it’s a little more fun and serendipitous whereas painting is a more direct and controlled process often done with just palette knife and my fingers. There is a lot of thought, exaggeration, and excitement as part of the process of my art making. ”
