Artist Statement and Biography
In 1987 when I was 8 years old, I created my very first paintings named “Pooh Bear on a train track with some honey by a window”. Since then, my art has developed through self-education, some formal education, and life experience. I like to take an idea, whether a moment of connection or a situation felt, and create a time and space around it on the canvas. The inspiration caused by seeing something evolve from nothing, and the effects that it can create, has spurred me on to developing my art. I enjoy experimenting and getting my ideas out in a way that words may not do justice.
When I experience the world, I know in those moments that I am only experiencing a snapshot of reality. Because of the experience of both that which I can and cannot see, and because of the enormous scope of our world, my faith both informs and interprets my experience. When I consider that scope, I become all too aware of my own smallness and frailty, awareness that drives my deep inner awe for life. I often find it hard to stop life and think about it …my hope is that my art will help allow a space for this reflection.
I enjoy music for two reasons: One – for its overall jingle, and Two – for the words and meaning it conveys. It is a bonus when I find a song that gives me both of these. Similar to music, I try to bring across both aesthetic presence and significance in my art.
