How would you describe your art?
I create expressionistic art. With all of my pieces no matter what the subject matter I want to inspire transformation, curiosity, and possibilities.
Please describe your creative process.
Like everyone I start with a blank canvas. 🙂 I love to start with acrylics and make a mess all over the canvas. And from the mess something beautiful emerges. I believe that that really corresponds to us in our lives.
What inspires you to create?
My goal in creation is to offer a visual nonverbal message of hope and transformation. And because of this I’m very inspired to paint. I want to offer this messaging to everyone who is seeking change in their life. There’s research that shows by changing your environment you can plant the seeds for bigger changes. And adding art to your environment is definitely a visual way to change it.
What are you trying to communicate with your art?
I’m trying to inspire change and transformation. I want my paintings when you look at them to make you feel something, to make you feel inspired, to make you feel empowered, to make you feel like there’s tons of possibilities.
What is your favorite quote? Why?
My favorite quote is an African proverb. If you want to go fast go alone if you want to go far go together. And when I was young in my career I didn’t realize the importance of this. However if you surround yourself with amazing people who are doing amazing things they inspire you to take yourself and whatever you’re trying to accomplish to the next level. So the people who you allow to be in your life influence how successful you’re going to be.
