I am an artist because of the voice my art work provides me. Producing art work is extremely psychological for me. My art helps me express my inner truth, allowing me to communicate visually what I often cannot verbally: my feelings and emotions. In response to difficult experiences in my past, my art work has developed into disguised confrontations. My work tends to have a consistent color palette of blue, red, and purple that both enhances and disguises the confrontational aspects present in my work. Because of the ranging vibrant shades and tints of red, blue, and purple viewers might expect a much happier message than what they receive upon full interpretation of my work. This parallels my personality; I have become a master at hiding behind a façade of strength, determination, and feelings of self-worth.
Like many children of broken families, my past has been difficult. Using art as a therapeutic process of dealing, I take control of my life and become aware of the stronger person that I am as a result of my past. Each of my art pieces feeds off of feelings I generate from recalled experiences of my past as well as direct experiences that I still confront. This is an aspect of my art work that I hope to project to my viewers through direct interaction and photographic images. By having a physical interaction with different textures or dialogue with visual images within my work, I hope my viewers will be able to read and understand the meanings and emotions that create each of my art pieces. However my work is open for interpretation and I expect and embrace controversial reads from different viewers.
