Artist Statement:
"My work is inspired by observing people who are closest to me. I capture their feelings and moods and try to communicate the social and economic disparity of life. I integrate symbols, words, and photographs into my mixed media painting. For me, the process of painting is combining personal experiences with the harsh realities of life. These are aspects that I try to express in my work. When I am faced with life's challenges, I want to show strength and character in my work. I illustrate this through the use of vertical and horizontal lines, organic and geometric shapes, and brightly colored hues. I paint because it moves me spiritually and transports me to a different place. My work is motivated by faith. This allows me to express myself fully. Painting is my therapy and salvation."

Made Possible by TRAHC membership contributions.
