I create images based on my perspective, feelings, and overall identity. The experiences and emotions are uniquely mine, but can be identified and shared universally by each person in their own way. Paint, collage, and various image transfer methods are used to make the mixed-media pieces. I strive to use a variety of techniques to create different textures and layers in each piece. Color changes unfold gradually or drastically based on the layers, as well as subtle to dramatic textural variations. My goal is to produce multi-faceted works which capture emotions. They are designed to be viewed again and again, allowing one to discover elements not seen at first glance. The viewer builds a relationship with the work based on their own experiences and the images I’ve created.
