“I have a free and restless spirit with a never ending, busy mind that embraces the adventures of life and makes me who I am. I express myself in my art with raw gut emotion and use loads of layers and textures, intertwined with positive and negative spaces, that form the composition. Sometimes I surprise myself with the outcome of my creations, never quite knowing how they will turn out. I call the style of my current work Contemporary Abstract.”
