“Art is my meditation and expression. Drawing with my exact-o knife to cut out paper stencils gives permanence to the moment. Cutting out these individual shapes of color allows me a peaceful escape into a world of vivid color and abstracted shapes. In this imaginative mind state, I can explore and channel my own aesthetic. Drawing, cutting, taping, screen printing, and applying each color layer is a rewarding daily practice. As time grows so does the artwork evolve. Although I have a vision and a plan for each limited edition of hand-cut screen prints, I don’t necessarily know how it will look until it is completed. In every stage of the process I take breaks to look, critique, discover and make the best choice for the next stencil of color shapes. It is this conversation where the piece takes form. I start to listen to what it is asking for and what it needs to become Art. I’m always renewed with energy at every layer and know that in the end, I will be creating something new for the world- offering people something different and inspirational to see and enjoy.”
