Each of my abstract expressionism paintings begin with an emotional foundation tied to a momentary experience.  I create from a connection to my immediate and present thoughts and feelings. For me, painting is therapeutic and provides a creative and productive outlet from an often busy and distracted world. Creating allows me to free and focus my mind.

My collections, and individual pieces, represent a window into the layers of the journey along my path on the mental health continuum.  It is my intention that each painting evoke a personal connection to emotion within the viewer.

The variable physical character of acrylics allows one to evoke expressive qualities.  The style of pointillism allows the freedom to create without restriction. The external focal points of my creations are depth, pattern, texture, and vibrant color.
