Artist Statement

I take visual and subliminal information and make imagery from it. I was born an artist. I have always been one. I feel Louise Bourgeois said it best when she stated, â??Artist are not made, they are born, they are born that way, there is very little you can do for them.â?? My work is very diverse and has an overall cohesive body. Series of my paintings are biomorphic, including energetic color clashes intertwining into the subject matter, which is at most times obscured. Color balance and composition are the two overruling thought factors in my digital work and paintings. Born 1968, in Houston, Texas. I have lived in NY since 1983.
