“With a non traditional approach to the canvas I create colorful lines, textures and washes; building up layers and then removing them, leaving an imprint, hinting to a visceral memory of what was once there. I want to evoke an emotional shift for the viewer, an introspective moment. Inspiration comes from collected ‘moments’ out in nature. These moments are interpreted, abstractly, through layers, lines, marks, and color. “
