Artist Statement: My artwork is inspired by heartbreak, love and the craving for connection. My art is my heart trying to make sense of what my eye sees. It is as if i were a time traveler; a romantic from the 18th century, dropped into our modern, chaotic world. As far back as i remember, anxiety has dogged my steps, but rather than recoil from it, i am painting my way through it. In my pieces, i am looking for portals and for gaps in time. I am looking for spaces in colors, and for shapes that might be a life force, or perhaps - a way to reconnect to that place i have been in my other life. I offer these pieces as my signposts.
