My art is an attempt to present the visual of a given energy or emotion. I often approach a canvas without intention, allowing the creative energy around me to do its job.  My goal is to produce an intimate and interactive experience while using predominantly large scale canvases to create an overwhelming presence.

In today’s hyper-fast environment, focusing on preserving something is important to me.  Resin creates an effect of an active, or wet, medium, though it is in fact very static. Using a high gloss medium forces the viewer to interact with my artfrom multiple angles.  Energy is always in flux so I want my work to appear to be in this same active state. At first look my paintings can be perceived as simple color fields but on closer inspection the medium reveals the layered metallic pigments and textural nuances.
