"My goal is to inspire energy and excitement – to empower the viewer to be bold. My paintings are meant to make you feel strong and powerful — to burst into your morning or invigorate your senses after a long day. Ideally, my art reminds you that life is for feeling and stretching and truly living."
"Color has always had a profound effect on my mood and on my state of mind. I can feel an entire shift in my thinking and my emotions when viewing a strikingly bold and colorful piece of art. The goal of my work is to inspire energy and excitement from within – to empower the viewer to do something bold and take risks to achieve their dreams. My paintings are not meant to “be vanilla” or just match someone’s couch. These images are meant to make you feel strong and powerful — to help you feel the excitement I had in creating them. My art is meant to burst into your morning with a zing, to prod you into action when you reach your mid-day lull, and/or to invigorate your senses after a long day. Ideally, my art evokes a reaction and reminds you that life is for feeling and stretching and living.”
