Artist Statement

Fusing a multitude of mediums, acrylic, gauche, color pencil and pen&ink to execute an eclectic color palette. I draw inspiration from patterns, textiles and the human form. Although being an artist often means a great source of inspiration dwells in the visual, but not limited to. Drawing strength from my main influence something that's not tangeable at all but eternal, the Holy Bible and it's author The Lord Jesus Christ. Mannerism, my key signature style derived from the high renaissance around 1520. A concept that stylize & exaggerates the form designed to provoke movement and emotion. Other means of expressions in my portfolio are sculpture influences in acrylic, clay, and plaster. Items of jewelry, journals and paintings in abstract are among the expressions I seek to inspire and bring glory to God. ---Colossians 3:17
