“An artist is someone who enjoys looking at the world through her own eyes, not someone else’s. Artists grant themselves the right to feel what they feel, when they feel it. And then they can turn it into something compellingly beautiful — if they so choose. Everything in life, from the said quality to the outcome, it’s all choice. You know it’s so.
My work is very expressive and descriptive. I use a visual vocabulary to express the narrative of living. My theory is that if I’ve experienced it someone else has; if I express it, someone else may understand and thus feel less alone. That’s what I want my work to be about.”
