Artist Statement

I paint disassociated images reflecting on the personal struggle life throws at us.  Parts of my paintings are deliberately left unfinished accentuating the emptiness.

People today are connected effortlessly more than at any time in history; yet they are similarly disconnected. Our society struggles with continued racism, intolerance and all kinds of abuse.  The sexual abuse and human trafficking is more common around us than we would care to believe.  Maybe disconnected is self preservation too?  With purpose these solitary images propose questions that may never be answered, at the same time may reveal a silent, proud, resolve.
