My artwork is influenced by emotional experiences and the frenetic urban life that I live. I am fascinated by urban elements, such as telephone wires, decayed walls, the words and colors in graffiti, and architecture. I am constantly translating a story and creating a dialogue with these images.
I play and manipulate these shapes by concealing them within layers of paint, only to scrape off many of these coats to quietly reveal their existence or to give them a recognizable presence. Often I will add textural mixed media elements, such as collaged photography or fabrics. Using the colors, lines, and shapes to turn them into whimsical and playful works of art.
