Artist Statement

I am fascinated with the 'human condition' that we are all a part of; more specifically with how each of us experiences and sees ourselves, each other and the world on our collective journey. As a child I was very sensitive and empathic. I would feel things very deeply and, at times, imagine I knew how those around me felt. My sensitive and creative mind literally felt the weight of humanity-- My mind would 'see' all these highs, lows, anxieties, and triumphs overlapping and bleeding into my own personal experiences. At that age I didn't know how to process what I was feeling, but as an adult I work through what I see on my canvas. I paint because I must.

When I look around and see what's happening in the world today it makes my heart break for humanity and it propels me to paint. I feel the pain, sorrow and discontent of so many souls. I hope that people who view my paintings recognize a piece of their own humanity and know they are being seen.
