"I create art simply because nothing else in life has brought me happiness the way painting does. After going to college many times, changing majors after receiving degrees and never finding my place in the world – art is the only thing that makes sense in my life.
I create my art sometimes on the spur of the moment or after seeing something and being inspired by it, whether it’s an emotion or something physical. I like to paint with acrylic because the colors are so vivid and the texture is unique. When making art, I choose materials that tie in with the main subject. If I am painting a beach for example, I would incorporate sand. If I am painting a starry night, I would use glitter.
Art is an outlet that deals with birth, love, death, beliefs, rituals, heredity and what it means to be human. That’s exactly what art is, being human and expressing humanistic themes. I believe I am reflecting life struggles, happiness and even tragedies through my work and presenting them in a new light.
