Artist Statement 

                  

In the 21st century, material goods are deemed vital in providing for comfortable lives. It seems that the more civilized we are as humans, the more trash we create.

 

When the environmental issue concerns me, I transfer those feelings into my art. I challenge myself as if I were fighting for survival in the toxic space. I dump my paint down, push my strokes, drip, wipe, struggle, and contemplate. During the process of creating art, I look around at my surroundings and use the trash as part of my statement in my work. When the visual elements finally align with my feelings, it’s time for the actions to stop.
