Artist Statement

When I think of my art, one word comes to mind: vitality. I believe vitality is the best essence of a human being. Not only do I strive to infuse my artwork with vitality through explosive color and movement, but I also try, through art, to instill myself with vitality — at least on a good day. Just as we experience joie de vivre when we feel our most vital, so too, do I experience the joy of life when painting, and I intend my paintings to reflect this joy.
