Artist's Statement

In reflecting on my work over the last ten years, I am able to stand back and observe the progression of how my pieces were initially conceived to what has shaped its creation currently. Being a biographical painter, my work has always been a mirror of the events that have taken place in my life. My pieces are a reflection of personal events which have transpired as well as influences from those around me and the artists who have inspired me. I have been intrigued by many artists and have been correlated to Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Willem De Kooning. While I have a great respect and admiration for these artists, I also believe my work is rooted in a more modern sensibility. Artists including Henri Matisse, Paul Gaugin and Constantin Brancusi have been as equally important in the development of my work and artistic inspirations.
