"Dark and light fractured imagery infuse my vision to understand struggle, pain, defeat, and victory. My paintings are based on the complex yet surprising interaction between control and contradiction and humanity’s violent struggle to succeed. Surprising, because when I experiment with shapes, mediums, ideas, and positions, the images that come forth are unexpected, revealing, and exciting. The rearrangement and juxtapositions of my design forms allow me to see emotional openings. I then visualize what these openings will look and feel like and paint them with my own personal language... I find joy in exposing and encouraging raw emotion and contemplation."
