Artist Statement:

I am currently working in watercolor, which allows me to achieve the diaphanous layers of color that are necessary to set the mood for the series of paintings I am working on.  I also often work in acrylics and mixed media. My background in art history has left me fascinated with religious symbolism and iconography and this is a constant thread in my art.

My recent work is inspired by the concepts of aging, decay, and the possibility of living forever.  There is always a spiritual element in my pieces as well as a personal one.  I strive to entangle the viewer in an emotion and draw them into the art work.
