My work is about contrast of colors, shapes and colors, and intense emotions with minimal description on the canvas. A flat, sterile effect of acrylic, combined with the intensity of human emotion makes for a powerful combinition. My paintings are a representation of my inner most feelings of fear, anger, frustration, hurt, and joy. When painting these emotions I am most inspired by the interaction of color and shape and the way colors and shapes combine to represent such emotions. I like to use contrasting colors to emphasize the intensity of the emotion. I listen to punk and hardcore music while painting to further intensify these emotions. When a person is viewing my paintings, I hope they will turn thoughts inward and live in the emotion / feelings that is being represented.
