My art explores our natural propensity for abstract thought. This concept has grown and evolved throughout my artistic career. I focus on the experience now. I let the creative process reveal the conceptual ideas and final design for a piece. My work explores spirituality, love, interconnectedness, and our ability to dream and express the full spectrum of human emotions.
I have always been passionate and completely distracted by my own fascination– fascination for nature, art, music, film, and writing. I grew up on The Doctor, Silverstein, and Calvin and his tiger. I was drawn to names like Hendrix, Morrison, Vonnegut, and Kerouac.
I was inspired by vivid imagery, eloquent words, experimental sound, thought-provoking concepts, and abstract perspectives. Watching live performance (from cosmic rock compositions to the powerful poetry of hip hop) taught me the art of improvisation. I strive to bring this freestyle approach to my live, experience-based paintings. It’s a release of emotion through free-flowing, unfiltered thoughts. Approaching a piece without pre-conceived concepts allows me to break down my own artistic boundaries.
With my progression in the realm of performance art, I continue to evolve through collaboration, experimentation, and an open-minded approach to all things artistic. I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, I studied art in Florida, and now I’m eager and excited to continue my growth in California. I approach each day as a wide-eyed observer, embracing everything and immersing myself in a world of creativity.
