Artist Statement

I’m attracted to the fluidity of color that oil painting allows; color is the most important element in my work. I emphasize colors that go unnoticed by most people because I believe everyone should be able to see the beauty that I see in them. I am interested in the exploration of shadows and the metaphors that come from them. When I paint, I see hidden colors in the shadows as they lay across the skin. I focus on one area of my reference photo to determine which colors to mix—this is when I begin seeing the non-local colors which I experiment with.
Shadows offer a metaphor that resonates with me when I am in a dark place. Light must exist for a shadow to be seen. Knowing that there still has to be good (light) in my life to create the bad (shadows) helps me continue living.
The variety of colors we see wouldn’t exist without light and dark working together. The same goes for you being who you are because of the light and dark in your own life. By using the captivating, imperceptible colors in dark shadows, I bring out the beauty many people overlook in themselves.
