Artist Statement

Everybody has something they excel at and my speciality and passion is art. I’ve experimented with different varieties of art but with my portfolio I wanted to display the work I believe showcases me as an artist. Art is an expression of who I am as a person and it challenges me to think critically and thoroughly about the message I am trying relay to people.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

Ansel Adams

Ansel Adam’s said it best “You don’t take a photograph you make it” this is a modo I have taken into consideration with the photography section of my portfolio. I have taken photographs that represent who I am as a fine artist. My photography is a representation of my fear, beauty, insecurity, and artistry.

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”

Georgia O’Keeffe

Painting for me is a new art form I have grown to love. Painting it is a form of self exploration and vision.  With the paintings showcased in my portfolio, I am hoping you understands my vision for sculptural painting and painting with vibrant color and texture.

Ceramics are new to me and I wasn’t quite sure how to go about creating these works but, when I took a ceramics class I realized that my beautiful bowls were true to my style. Ceramics is a true art form that takes patience, strength and elegance.

Graphic Design is something I have toyed with over the last couple of years but it is a art form that I am still learning.
