Artist Statement


Since my earliest memories I have been intrigued and inspired by art, it has been the best way for me to express my ideas and feelings, creating art makes me feel alive.

I have had the opportunity of studying with many talented artists who encouraged me to explore many mediums. The day I pulled my first print I knew it was the medium for me. I love the element of surprise involved with printing, it is magical.                                                                                    Place mouse over image.                                                         neonlighsweb.jpg                                                   

Color and design are essential to my imagery, working color combinations; playing color against color, balancing it with design and compositions is a challenge. Developing textures and forms determine the direction of my work. I want my paintings to be bright and saturated with color, to have texture and depth to them.

It is indeed my wish that people will recall a meaningful memory when they view my paintings and thus find my work to be an experience and not just a detached image.

"The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery."
