Artist Statement

When I paint, I am painting the moment.  One perspective of the moment.  The memory of the moment.  My perspective of the moment. 

I delve into the mysteries of fleeting moments, seeking to capture their essence with every stroke of my brush. Through carefully crafted colors and textures I am reminded of the transient nature of time and the stories that unfold in its passing.

Each abstract painting becomes a window into a world shaped by memory, emotion, and personal reflection. Through abstract forms and vibrant hues, I evoke a sense of introspection, inviting viewers to explore the depths of their own experiences and perceptions.

Art is a dance between the tangible and intangible, a conversation between past and present that unfolds with each artistic expression. It is a meditative journey of discovery, where the canvas serves as a mirror reflecting the complexities of human existence and the beauty found in moments of contemplation.

By embracing the impermanence of life and exploring the nuances of our shared human experience, I spark connections and ignite curiosity in those who gaze upon my creations. Through art, we are reminded of the power of perspective, storytelling, and the universal language that unites us all in the tapestry of existence.
