My self-directed art education and practice began at the age of six out of my need for safe refuge and distraction from the domestic violence that frequently occurred in our home.
Agrarian landscapes and culture are a central theme in the visual art that I create, and are inspired by my own experiences growing up in a rural environment. My work is simplified and involve haphazard paint events that lend an improvisational element to the piece in a spontaneous kind of way. I attempt to convey what I see and feel into a compelling image that honors the nature and spirit of a subject’s place, and my connection to it.
