I describe my work as a mixed media representation of my life, thoughts, and emotions as they relate to me and my environment. I strive to create a painting that is not only a product of my individuality, but one that gives the viewer a personal connection to the work. My hope is that viewers may bring their own individuality and perspective to the piece. I can honestly say that the painting created represents a certain period of my life, neither good nor bad, but a part of my experience.
My entire body of work is made out of recycled materials. Most materials are found, donated, or the product of mistakes made by retailers (such as mis-cut or recycled frames, mis-tinted paints, and the free bins at yard sales). This allows me to save recyclable materials that were destined for the landfill while producing a high quality product.
