My styles of art vary greatly and are quite diverse.  My experimentation has taken me many places. I follow my art and soul.To best describe my artwork,  would be to describe my many bodies of work… which span a range of imagery, ideas, and influences. 

A common thread in my work has been figurative abstraction in a surrealistic style. Inspired by themes of nature and fantasy. My artis often vibrantly colorful. Color is a very important element in myart work. The figure is expressed in my work in ways that conveys fragility and strength. Relationships of nature to the figure refer to a symbiotic connection of the physical and spiritual or of the interior and exterior worlds.

The use of mixed media gives me great freedom of expression ina variety of themes, in both abstract and realistic styles. Themes that interest memost are spirituality, personal identityand diverse views of beauty. These areas are explored separately andsometimes in relation to each other.
