Artist Statement

My acrylic paintings deal with a mixture of style and ideas, combining abstract ideas with color, along with more traditional figurative work.
My goal is to capture the innate human spirit and reveal a provocative narrative between the subject and its surroundings.
The intentional play with perspective allows the viewer to see the art as being much about composite space as it is about hidden meanings.
My influences come from several places:
friends, surrealism, erotica, and life experiences.
They help me create work that I hope will be both striking and seductive.
