Artist's Statement
I do art because I get inspired as I work. I want to let my art grow at New World School of the Arts. I hope one day I can look at my artwork and think "Wow" because I can't believe how much my work has grown. I like photography, so a piece often starts with an interesting photograph I have taken of something looked at in a strange way, for instance, me taking a picture of me in a blue mirror looking at the sky. Next I choose a medium. Although it’s usually acrylics, I sometimes choose other materials. As I work with paint, I am reminded of all the colors used in a green shirt, or a brown table leg: blue, yellow, red and brown. My work has grown out of my childish drawings into something I can feel proud of. Now my work is compositionally sound, shows value, and is visually interesting. I hope my work will continue to grow and inspire me.
